The practice was started by the Communication Workers of America who wear red on Thursdays in order to honor Gerry Hogan, a member who was killed while on the picket line.

This website is more than a Union focus website. It is a website linked to many information sites. These information sites provide knowledge of what is going on in our communities, province, country and on a global scale.

Knowledge is the key to unlocking people from poverty, hatred, and discrimination.

Knowledge elevates social and economic justice above greed and exploitation of people and exploitation of our lands and our environment.
