Labour Day a hit for Society members and families

September 22, 2016

Hundreds of Society members and their families joined Labour Day festivities across Ontario earlier this month.

The Society had contingents at the Barrie, Durham, Grey Bruce, Hamilton, London, Ottawa, Sudbury and Toronto events, where they championed the theme The Society Stands for Fairness.

In Toronto, more than 200 people marched, including a group of Legal Aid Ontario lawyers, whom The Society has been working to organize into the union’s first bargaining unit entirely outside of the energy sector.

President Scott Travers, Executive Vice President Policy Michelle Johnston and Executive Vice President Member Services Andy D’Andrea were all present in Toronto to greet and march with members.

To mark Labour Day, Travers sent out a message to all members wishing them well and reflecting on the role professionals have played in building a better, fairer Canada.
