Join us to remember the life and work of Bob White, a pillar of Canada's labour movement who passed away in February of this year. Bob became an organizer at a young age, leading his first strike at a wood-working shop in Woodstock, Ontario at the age of 22 (in 1957).
He would go on to become the director of the Candian region of the United Auto Workers and spearheaded the exit of Canadian workers from that union and into the Canadian Auto Workers. Bob served as the CAW's founding president from 1985 to 1991. He later became president of the Canadian Labour Congress.
