Important note

OPSEU and the Toronto & York Region Labour Council fully support the members of IATSE Local 58 who are locked out at Exhibition Place. We urge all OPSEU members to respect the IATSE picket lines, to NOT attend the CNE during the lockout, and to join IATSE on their lines.

If the lockout is not resolved by Labour Day, the parade will be rerouted to support the IATSE picket lines. Stay tuned for updates before Sept. 3.

Either way, please plan to join us at Labour Day to send Doug Ford and John Tory a powerful message that OPSEU stands for justice – and workers’ solidarity!
