Ken Georgetti has been President of the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) for 15 years. After that tenure, no one would begrudge him his retirement. So why is he running for another three year term at the CLC convention next week?
Because he still has work to do. "We've got a job to finish," Georgetti said over the phone Monday morning. He wants to keep pressing forward with the CLC's Fairness Works campaign and get the congress ready for the federal and provincial elections that are on the horizon.
Hassan Yussuff believes he's the man who can change the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC).
The current Secretary-Treasurer of the CLC entered the race for President earlier this month, running against incumbent President Ken Georgetti and newcomer Hassan Husseini.
Yussuff's goal is to return the CLC to doing the kind of militant organizing that for years defined the organization and helped win many of the labour victories that have shaped how unions work in Canada.
