Worker Solidarity Cavalcade
Saturday, May 9 / 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Green Jobs Oshawa is organizing a worker solidarity cavalcade. We want to show our support for front line workers as well as highlight the severe shortage of vital PPE. We will be meeting in our vehicles and driving through Oshawa, past the hospital and long-term care homes, and ending at the GM plant.
While GM Oshawa being used to produce level 1 masks is a good first step, N95 masks are in seriously short supply and are vital to keeping front line workers safe. We are demanding that N95 masks be manufactured immediately in the GM Oshawa facility, and that production of medical goods and PPE in GM Oshawa be vastly expanded, be made permanent, and become a Crown Corporation.
This is your chance to show GM and the Federal and Provincial Governments that further action is needed now to ensure a steady supply of critical PPE and save lives.
We will gather at the O’Neill Collegiate parking lot on Mary St. N., Oshawa at 1:30pm. The cavalcade will depart at 2pm, and visit Lakeridge Health Oshawa and Hillsdale Terraces before ending up at the GM Assembly Plant.
