At least eight youth from Waterloo Region are planning to attend a conference in Ecuador in December to talk about the global challenges to labour and plan for international solidarity.
The World Festival of Youth and Students is taking place in Quito, Ecuador, from December 7-13, 2013. Local delegates Drew Garvie and Peter Miller presented to the October meeting of the Waterloo Regional Labour Council, and asked delegates to consider sponsoring youth to attend the Festival or to send young workers from their own Local.
The Labour Council is making a donation to the Festival, and encourages all union Locals to do the same.
Below please find the letter to the Labour Council from the Guelph-Kitchener Preparatory Committee for the Festival, as well as a newsletter of the Pan-Canadian Preparatory Committee.
