When: Tuesday May 18th, 10:30am

Register to be there and hold Ford accountable. Email ohc@sympatico.ca with your name and town so we can tell the opposition parties you are there. Use the subject line FordFailedSeniors so we can easily spot your email. Include a sentence or two if you have a personal experience with long-term care for the opposition parties to raise if they can, pushing for key changes.

May 16, 2021 - Class Struggle and Union Organizing at Amazon

When: Sunday May 16th, 2pm

Join us for a presentation and roundtable discussion on class struggle and union organizing at Amazon warehouses with Alessandro Delfanti and Amazon workers and organizers Ira and Fathia.

A central political challenge for the Left today is to organize gig workers across the sectors of digital capitalism into unions. High-tech corporations such as Amazon, Google, Apple, and Facebook have quickly become one of - if not the - most powerful sectors of contemporary capitalism, and these and other companies have been equally creative and vicious in keeping their operations all but free of unions. The struggle to organize and unionize workers in "Big Tech" has recently become concentrated on Amazon, the pivotal company in the new logistics of distribution and retail, and now, one of the largest employers on the planet, next to Wal-Mart and US Department of Defense.
