Errol Black Chair in Labour Issues fundraising brunch

Fundraising Brunch 

Sunday Nov 2, 10 am Fort Garry Hotel
222 Broadway Ave. Winnipeg, MB

Errol Black was a founding member of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives-Manitoba. He made an enormous contribution to the work, most significantly through his voluminous writing on labour issues.   Errol died November 2012. To honour his memory and to carry on his work, we have established the Errol Black Chair in Labour Issues. 

In the spirit of the work of Errol Black – this year’s brunch will recognize the contribution of the Manitoba Federation of Labour Occupational Health Centre (OHC).  The keynote speaker will be Dr. Linda  Rae Murray.   Dr. Murray was the first physician of the MFL Occupational Health Centre in 1983. She has had a long career in occupational health and safety and public health care. As an activist, Dr. Murray speaks out against racism and gender discrimination and advocates for worker’s rights. She is currently the chief medical officer for the Illinois Cook County Department of Public Health, a general internist at a Chicago community health center, and on the faculty at the University of Illinois Chicago in the Department of Occupational and Environmental Health.

Please join us on November 2 at the Fort Garry Hotel, 10 am to celebrate the work of the OHC.  Funds raised at this event will go to support the Errol Black Chair in Labour Issues and CCPA-Manitoba.
Tickets for the brunch are $100 – with a tax receiptable portion of $50.  A table of 10 at the brunch is $1000, which is also tax receiptable for individuals.  Those purchasing a table will also get recognition in the program.
Cheques should be made payable to the CCPA-MB and mailed to:
