KITCHENER, ONTARIO and WATERLOO, ONTARIO and GUELPH, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/04/14 -- A province-wide campaign, launched last month against Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak, will be rolling into Kitchener with an urgent all-union meeting Mon., April 7. 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 6:30 p.m. Photo opportunities and interviews can be arranged in advance.
What: Media Conference in advance of the Kitchener, Waterloo and Guelph Regional Meeting to Stop Tim Hudak When: 6:30 p.m., April 7 Where: Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex, 400 East Ave. Details: For more information about the campaign, visit: http://www.rightsatwork.ca/
"Hudak wants to force workers in the Waterloo 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 Waterloo Regional Labour Council President Marc Xuereb.
"We are going to bring the message about Hudak to every union member and especially members who have voted for the Conservatives in the past to say 'not this time, Mr. Hudak,' said Guelph and District Labour Council President Janice Folk-Dawson, "We will be telling our co-workers, friends and neighbours exactly what a Hudak government has in store."

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
