Sid Ryan, former President of the OFL, lambasts union leaders Jerry Dias of UNIFOR and Smokey Thomas of OPSEU, for sharing a platform with Ontario Premier Doug Ford while the premier announced a miniscule, long-delayed raise in the minimum wage to $15/hr. The OFL, which was holding its conference the same week, had already moved beyond the demand for a $15 minimum wage years ago, according to Ryan, in favour of a "living wage."

These union "leaders" do not speak for labour in Canada, and their own track records on behalf of their own union members leaves much to be desired. There was even a conflict-of-interest in the writing of the Toronto Star articles concerning the event. The journalist, Martin Regg Cohn, did not disclose that he is a UNIFOR member, who sought to promote Dias, and even tweeted on his behalf.
