Thomas said he was eager to kick off the organizing drive, which aims to bring thousands of part‑time workers under the umbrella of OPSEU. “This is one of those moments when I feel particularly proud to be part of an organization that gives a strong, united voice to workers who have no say in their workplaces. It’s time for these hardworking women and men to be heard.”
