Breakfast with OFL President, Chris Buckley

7:30 AM - 8:45 AM

Free

Attention Union Leaders:

Please join us for breakfast on Tuesday, September 11 at 7:30 a.m. with Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) President Chris Buckley.

Details are in the attached poster.

A lifelong trade unionist and social justice advocate, Chris has dedicated himself to improving the lives of every worker in Ontario. He is the former President of Unifor Local 222 in Oshawa and chair of the GM Master Bargaining Committee, where he led negotiations with General Motors through four rounds of talks and spearheaded a 12-day blockade of the General Motors Canadian headquarters to stop the Oshawa truck plant closure and provoke the government to make ‘Made in Canada’ a principle of public policy.

Chris served as the co-chair of the campaign cabinet of the United Way of Durham Region for eight years. He was also a volunteer leader for the YWCA’s ‘One Man at a Time’ campaign, aimed at ending violence against women. Chris was a NDP candidate in the 2011 federal election in the riding of Oshawa. He also previously organized and hosted a large-scale event for students in the Durham Region ‘Our Youth Our Future,’ with the goal of building hope and optimism for a shared future. Chris has strong ties within the community, with the firm belief that through building strong relationships with allies we can better advocate for the change we want to see.
