Sisters and Brothers,
The New Brunswick Federation of Labour (NBFL) Political Education Committee will be holding a Political Education Conference on November 23 & 24, 2017 at the St Thomas University Conference Centre. The theme of the Conference is:
Together for a Better New Brunswick:
Agenda for the Future
The decisions made by our elected officials impact our workplaces, our families and our communities. Hence, it’s imperative that organized labour be a strong voice and influence in the political arena at all levels of government.
That is why you are strongly encouraged to participate in this conference. It will include engaging guest speakers and panel discussions as well as workshops on mobilizing and taking political action on social and economic issues.
On behalf of the NBFL Political Education Committee, I thank you very much for your continued support; we are looking forward to your participation.
In Solidarity,Patrick Colford
