The Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) has rejoined the Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) after a 10-year absence, a move CAW president Ken Lewenza hopes will strengthen the labour movement in Ontario.

“I thought we would be in a better position to influence government with a united labour movement,” he says. “It’s very significant if we can put the issues of common purpose on the front page of our agenda.”
