Bowl to Win: Help Us Build the Movement for Decent Work
The Ontario Employment Education & Research Centre (OEERC) and the Worker’ Action Centre are hosting their 11th annual Workers’ Bowl (in-person) on Saturday, November 18, 2023!
What are we fundraising for?
Your fundraising allows us to support leaders in their communities to reach more workers. That’s how we build a multiracial, multilingual movement to improve the lives and working conditions of people in low-wage and precarious employment in Ontario.
All funds raised at the Workers’ Bowl go directly to the OEERC Education and Leadership Fund for Workers in Precarious Employment. The fund supports leadership development and educational projects, executed in collaboration with the Workers’ Action Centre (WAC). In the past such projects have included:
- The Feet on the Ground (FOG) Leadership Training Program to develop skills in community organizing for racialized and low-income workers, rank and file union members, and non-unionized workers in precarious jobs across Ontario;
- Internships for workers that have supported them to develop skills in community outreach, and public education on rights in the workplace in Mandarin, Bengali, Punjabi, Somali, Spanish and Tamil;
- ESL classes focusing on the language of the workplace and workplace rights;
- Public education through multi-lingual community-based newspapers, radio shows and online programs
Come for the fundraising, stay for the good time!
The Workers’ Bowl brings out about 200 participants for a day of good family fun. Teams come from the union, social justice, academic, healthcare, and labour law communities. With games, “cool” costumes, prizes, and a silent auction, you and your team will have a blast.
