NORTH BAY, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/04/14 -- A province-wide campaign, launched last month against Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak, will be rolling into North Bay with an urgent all-union meeting Sat., April 5. Calling Hudak's claim that he has shelved his anti-worker scheme a dishonest tactical maneuver, Ontario's labour movement is forging ahead with plans to travel the province and expose Hudak's hidden agenda.
"Mr. Hudak's entire platform is centred on dismantling the labour movement to clear the way for a low-wage economy," said OFL President Sid Ryan. "He isn't fooling anyone. No matter how he tries to massage his message, Tim Hudak is still committed to the same extremist policies that would divide our workplaces, weaken workers' voices and drive down wages for everyone."
The Ontario Federation of Labour and regional labour councils are planning upwards of 20 meetings to train workers to educate their colleagues, families and neighbours about Hudak's hidden agenda. The campaign launched in Durham with more than 300 workers, and meetings continue to be packed.
While the meeting itself is closed to reporters, a media conference will take place at 9:30 a.m. Photo opportunities and interviews can be arranged in advance.
What: Media Conference in advance of the North Bay Regional Meeting to Stop Tim Hudak When: 9:30 a.m., Sat., April 5 Where: Royal Canadian Legion, 150 First Ave. West, North Bay Details: For more information about the campaign, visit: www.RightsatWork.ca
"Hudak wants to force workers in the North Bay region to compete with workers in low-wage jurisdictions in a race to the bottom, so he wants to eliminate the workplace rights that stand in the way of his plan," said North Bay and District Labour Council President Henri Giroux. "We are going to bring this message to every union member and especially members who have voted for the Conservatives in the past to say 'not this time, Mr. Hudak.' We will be telling our co-workers, friends and neighbours exactly what a Hudak government has in store."

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will look at the protocols that communicate data and the emerging data analy...
