Dear members, the event below has been postponed.
The Reachout Committee is a non-profit organization that services youth and their families in the Brampton, Mississauga and Toronto area. Community activists attended their 7th Annual Community Back to School Event on Sunday August 25, 2013 which was a great success. CBTU representatives donated materials and provided financial contributions to the cause.
The CBTU Region 1 Conference will be taking place from August 15-18,
2013 in Rochester, NY, USA. Attached are the documents for
registration. Please drop us a line if you have registered so we have
an idea of the Canadian delegation that will be in attendance, thank
Hello dear members,
The next CBTU Ontario Canada Chapter GMM will take place on September 9, 2013 from 6:30pm - 8pm, at 25 Cecil St (free parking available).
Agenda to be determined.
This summer, on August 28, people from across the US and Canada will converge on Washington to commemorate the 50th anniversary of this historic occasion. Our company, MS Touring, is organizing a trip to Washington in collaboration with the Ontario Chapter of the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists. We will leave Toronto by motorcoach on the morning of Saturday August 24 and return in the evening on Thursday August 29. While in Washington, we will participate in the March, as well as other commemorative events. In addition, we will take a Black History Tour of Washington, visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture's exhibit "Changing America: The Emancipation Proclamation, 1863 and the March on Washington, 1963", and view the art exhibit by renowned African American artist Faith Ringgold “American People, Black Light:" at the national Museum of Women in the Arts.
I wanted everyone to know that I have stepped down as CBTU Chapter President effective immediately. Andrea McCormack is now the Acting President for the duration of the term (November 2014). My total confidence is with her and the amazing Executive to continue the collective proactive work that has been the official mandate of this Chapter. This Chapter will always remain an integral part of my daily life and they know I am only a phone call away always. It has been an honour and privilege to represent black workers’ interests nationally and internationally wherever and whenever I could in my capacity as Chapter President and as the first Canadian International Board member. Those moments will be cherished forever in my heart and soul.
