This is an invitation for all OTs to get together for pizza and a drink to celebrate the end of the school year and the anticipation of summer. As a membership, we haven’t had the opportunity to meet in person for the last few years. We are hoping this is a start to making those connections again. If you are in an LTO assignment and are doing report cards on that day, you may be ready for a break. We hope to see you there!

It would be great if you could attend this OFL rally in Thunder Bay. Rallies will happen on May 1 in many communities across the province with a huge rally in Toronto at Queen’s Park. I will be in Toronto and will attend there. Registration isn’t necessary but it does provide the organizers with numbers of participants to share with the media and government.
If re-elected, the PC party has more cuts to education and health care planned. We need to take these opportunities to have our concerns heard.
On May 1, 2022, join the province-wide day of action for a better Ontario.
May 1, or May Day, is the traditional workers’ holiday, a day that working people celebrate the gains they have won over the years and commit to fighting for a better future for everyone.
In Thunder Bay on May 1, we’re assembling at Hillcrest Park (12:30 PM) and marching to Waverley Park for a May Day rally (1:00 PM – 2:30 PM).
It’s time for a $20 minimum wage, decent work, affordable housing, paid sick days, well-funded public services, livable income support for all, climate justice, status for all, and an end to racism and oppression. Join us!
You are invited to participate in an online scavenger hunt.
