ELECTION 360 – The Ontario Progressive Conservatives share that the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers Local Union 285 (SMART LOCAL 285) announced their endorsement of Doug Ford and the Ontario PCs as the best choice for the June 2nd provincial election.

“Doug Ford and the Ontario PCs value tradespeople and are putting workers in the driver’s seat of the province’s economic recovery,” says Bob Gougeon, Business Manager/Financial Secretary of SMART Local 285. “A re-elected PC government will continue to encourage apprenticeships and invest in job creation across Ontario by connecting jobseekers and opportunities in the skilled trades with workers.” The Ontario PCs have and will continue to address Ontario’s labour shortage in the skilled trades by investing in programs that will prepare people for careers in the sheet metal, gas technician and production sectors.

By supporting full and meaningful apprenticeship programs through targeted initiatives and funding to attract more young people into rewarding careers in the trades, a re-elected PC government will make sure that well­paying and rewarding jobs within Ontario’s housing sectors are a top priority. For these reasons, SMART Local 285 believes that Doug Ford and the Ontario PCs are the best choice this election. The International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers Local Union 285, looks forward to continuing their work with Doug Ford, Monte McNaughton and a re-elected PC government to strengthen and improve Ontario for everyone.
