The Greater Toronto Workers' Assembly (GTWA) is bringing Air Canada workers to Occupy Toronto. Join us as we make the connection between their struggle and the occupation movement and examine how we can we support each other.



- Sean Smith is the Strike and Mobilisation Co-ordinator for CAW Local 2002 representing over 10,000 workers across the country in the airline industry. He is also a member of the Greater Toronto Workers' Assembly.

- CUPE Air Canada Flight attendants currently in struggle for a fair contract and being threatened with back to work legislation.


Dress for the weather.

Note: Last week we met with striking workers from Ming Pao newspaper who made the links between their struggle and the occupy movement. The second half of the meeting this tuesday will consist of developing concrete plans on how we can support the Ming Pao workers.
