OFUR’s busy 2010 included G20 march

Orville Thacker, president of the Ontario Federation of Union Retirees, reported a busy year with the ninth bi-annual convention in Sudbury in mid-April with 70 delegates as well as five OFUR executive meetings.

A retirees’ delegation attended an OFL-CLC pensions conference in March.  Retirees also joined 30,000 people on a march during G20 meetings in Toronto.  Thacker reported the rally was overwhelmingly peaceful until disrupted by 100 vandals.

OFUR continues to work with the OFL with delegates attending OFL executive council meetings and OFL conventions.

OFUR also represented seniors with presentations to municipal governments.  In elections in the Waterloo region, 22 candidates were endorsed and more than 50% elected.
