|Ken Georgetti re-elected to fourth term as President of the Canadian Labour Congress
|Without opposition, Ken Georgetti was re-elected President at the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) Convention in Toronto from May 26-30, 2008, winning a
fourth three-year term as head of Canada's largest labour organization.
Also re-elected by acclamation were Secretary-Treasurer Hassan Yussuff and Executive Vice-Presidents Barbara Byers and Marie Clarke Walker.
Georgetti, who sought re-election with the slogan "Fighting for change, delivering results," thanked the delegates for their confidence.
"Over the next three years we will intensify our efforts to promote the unionization of women and men who don't enjoy the union advantage; we will ramp up our
political activism during and between elections at the municipal, provincial and federal levels to achieve progressive social change," says Georgetti.
The Canadian Labour Congress, the national voice of the labour movement, represents 3.2 million Canadian workers. The CLC brings together Canada's
national and international unions along with the provincial and territorial federations of labour and 130 district labour councils.
The Convention, which meets every three years, is the supreme governing body of the Canadian Labour Congress.
