Members will discuss a wide range of topics including threats to unions

Unifor, Canada's largest private sector union, will hold the first of its regional councils Dec. 6 to 8 at the Sheraton Centre in Toronto.

More than 750 members will attend, with an agenda that will include speakers from both Unifor and the community, including the outspoken Conservative Senator Hugh Segal and the mother of a Toronto teen lost to gun violence.

The agenda will cover issues ranging from threats to unions to violence against women.

Unifor was formed Labour Day weekend with the merger of the Canadian Auto Workers and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union. It represents more than 300,000 workers across Canada, including 156,000 in Ontario, in every major sector of the economy.
