CALL FOR PAPERS, WORKSHOPS AND PRESENTATIONS: WHEN UNIONS MATTER MOST – OPPORTUNITIES FOR COLLABORATION AND SOLIDARITY

The Pacific Northwest Labour History Association’s (PNLHA) 43rd annual conference, presented in collaboration with the Simon Fraser University Centre for Labour Studies

June 17th – 19th, 2011
Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre, Vancouver, BC

The labour movement goes far beyond unionized workers. Significant struggles for workers’ rights have always involved non-union sectors, both locally and internationally. Some collaborations have been highly successful, others have left lingering distrust.

This conference seeks to find the best historical models for organizing, strategic alliances and coalitions, and to connect these models with contemporary actions to consider how the labour movement can strengthen for the future.

We invite proposals for academic research, panels, individual presentations, interactive workshops, drama, music, art, memorabilia displays and other forms of presentation. Interactive sessions are preferred and the reading of papers is discouraged.

Proposal deadline is January 14, 2011.  Please send a short summary and list of all presenters to Ms. Joey Hartman, PNLHA BC Vice President, by email to pnlha@shaw.ca, or by mail to #2402 – 6888 Station Hill Drive, Burnaby, BC,
Canada, V3N 4X5.

For further information contact Joey Hartman at 604-540-0245. For updates, check our website: http://www.pnlha.org

STRIKING IN A TIME OF AUSTERITY: THE NOSM STRIKE IN NORTHERN ONTARIO

by Scott Neigh, The Bullet

The 150 members of Unit 2 of Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) Local 677 have been on strike since August 16. The office, technical, and administrative workers at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) went on strike after almost a year of negotiations to try and achieve a first collective agreement. At the forefront of the struggle are basic quality-of-work and quality-of-life issues. But lurking in the background are larger questions of how workers in the broader public sector and their employers will position themselves with respect to the austerity agenda declared with such fanfare by world leaders at the G20 summit in Toronto in June, and affirmed in this year’s federal and provincial budgets by the Harper and McGuinty governments.

NEW REPORT REVEALS THE FUTURE OF LITERACY IN CANADA’S LARGEST CITIES

A new report from the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL) provides an unprecedented look at the future state of adult literacy in Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal, from 2001 through 2031. 

Released to coincide with UNESCO International Literacy Day, The Future of Literacy in Canada’s Largest Cities uses statistical projections to generate literacy profiles for the country’s largest metropolitan areas. According to the report, the four cities will experience significant, above-average growth in the number of adults with low literacy in the coming decades.

REFORMER ELECTED TO HEAD ATU TRANSIT UNION

by Mark Brenner, Labor Notes

Larry Hanley was elected president today of the 190,000-member Amalgamated Transit Union, which organizes bus drivers in cities across the U.S. and Canada, by delegates to the ATU Convention.

Hanley helped found the Keep America Moving coalition to build support for mass transit. Labor Notes’ Mark Brenner interviewed Hanley this month about how he would run the ATU differently and organize transit workers together with community members.

SOCIAL PLANNING COUNCIL: CALL OUT TO CANDIDATES AND ORGANIZATIONS TO ENDORSE THE TORONTO OPEN BUDGET INITIATIVE DECLARATION TODAY

Social Planning Toronto is working with the Toronto Open Budget Initiative (TOBI) to get the word out to Mayoral and City Council candidates – it’s time to open the City’s budget process! TOBI, a broad-based group of residents and community organizations, is working to make the City’s budget process more open, transparent, inclusive and participatory. At present, residents and groups have only two opportunities to weigh in on the City budget process, both after most of the real decisions have already been made. In response to the lack of opportunity for meaningful civic engagement on the City’s capital and operating budgets, members developed the TOBI Declaration of Principles, Values and Recommended Actions to improve the City’s budget process. Principles and values include: inclusiveness, accessibility, integrity and transparency, influence, accountability, and flexibility and transformation. Recommended actions include changes to the process that would have residents and groups have their say throughout the budget process, starting at the early formative stages.

Are you a candidate for City Hall or a worker, volunteer or board member from a community group? We need to hear from you! Check out our new website at http://www.torontoopenbudget.ca to read over the TOBI Declaration and send in the Statement of Support to endorse these ideas for change. Deadline for submitting endorsements is Wednesday, October 6. After October 6, TOBI will be publicly releasing the list of endorsers. Event details to follow.

For more information or to join TOBI, please contact Beth Wilson at beth@socialplanningtoronto.org or call (416) 351-0095 x257.
