More than 800 delegates from across Ontario attended the OFL’s Power of Many conference in Toronto March 25 to fight the Ford government’s anti-worker policies.

The Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) will spearhead a campaign to ask Conservative MPPs to put pressure on Premier Doug Ford to derail education cuts and anti-labour policies, the CBC reports. Union leaders will ask their members in constituencies held by Conservatives to pressure Ford to abandon his anti-worker policies, the report says.

The campaign was outlined at the OFL’s Power of Many conference in Toronto March 25. More than 800 delegates from across Ontario met to plan a strategy to fight the Ford cutbacks.

“This government is going to attack workers and the labour movement is not going to sit back and let it happen,” OFL President Chris Buckley said. “We’re going to push back as hard as we can.”
