September 30th has been declared Orange Shirt Day annually, in recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children's sense of self-esteem and well being, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters.
Phyllis (Jack) Webstad's story in her own words...
Kevin Smith (representing Grey-Bruce Labour Council and OSSTFD7-OPT BU) and Krista McCormick (representing OSSTFD-ESP BU) attended a BBQ-Rally for OPSEU 276 who are on strike at the Family Health Organization in Owen Sound. The President of OPSEU, Warren ‘Smokey’ Thomas was in attendance at yesterday’s BBQ-Rally and has indicated that it is time to increase the actions. Both the OSSTF District 7 and the ESP BU have provided a donation to support our Brothers and Sisters in their pursuit of a fair offer!
