Ontario Provincial NDP Needs Your Support

 

 

Sisters and Brothers:

 

We are heading into a major election this year in Ontario.

 

As a worker, there is only one party that I can support as a Union member and leader of the IAM in Canada: the Ontario New Democrats. This is a party that stood beside Labour in the fight for $15 and Fairness, and it is the only party that truly holds Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals to account. Certainly the Conservatives are not an option; we only need to remember our last election cycle, when the Ontario Conservatives promised to gut Labour law in Ontario and bring in a US-style Right-To-Work legislation.

 

That’s why I am urging our members to support the Party that makes the most sense for Ontario workers, and start building a social structure in this Province that benefits working families. As you are likely aware, direct contributions from organizations are prohibited in Ontario; only individual contributions from residents are allowed.

 

The IAM has partnered with the Ontario NDP in their fundraising efforts, and we are providing IAM members an opportunity to support the Party financially. Election campaigns require a great deal of hard work, and the funding to carry out our mandate. We are asking you to consider supporting the Party that supports workers. All contributions are tax-deductible.

Let’s make a change in Ontario, and get out and win this election!

1st Ballot for NDP Leader
Thought on Labour

“This business of petty inconvenience and indignity, of being kept waiting about, of having to do everything at other people’s convenience, is inherent in working-class life. A thousand influences constantly press a working man down into a passive role. He does not act, he is acted upon. He feels himself the slave of mysterious authority and has a firm conviction that ‘they’ will never allow him to do this, that, and the other. Once when I was hop-picking I asked the sweated pickers (they earn something under sixpence an hour) why they did not form a union. I was told immediately that ‘they’ would never allow it. Who were ‘they’? I asked. Nobody seemed to know, but evidently ‘they’ were omnipotent.” ― George Orwell, The Road to Wigan Pier
