SARNIA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/15/14 -- A province-wide campaign, launched last month against Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak, will be rolling into Sarnia with an urgent all-union meeting 7 - 9 p.m., Wed., April 16. Calling Hudak's claim that he has shelved his anti-worker scheme a 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 OFL 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 Sarnia Meeting to Stop Tim Hudak When: 6:30 p.m., Wed., April 16 Where: Unifor Local 914 Union Hall, 900 Devine Street (at Indian Rd., S.), Sarnia Details: For more information about the campaign, visit: www.rightsatwork.ca
"Hudak wants to force workers in the Sarnia 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 Sarnia & District Labour Council President Ray Fillion. "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."
President, Sarnia & District Labour Council

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
