The Proposal Committee established by the CAW and the CEP to develop a plan for a new Canadian union held its sixth meeting in Toronto, this was its first meeting after the strong endorsements that were given to the New Union proposal at the recent conventions of both organizations.

The Proposal Committee agreed to organize a founding convention for the New Union, to take place in Toronto on the Labour Day weekend, 2013.

The convention will begin on Friday, August 30, and conclude on September 1. This will allow delegates of the new union to participate behind their new banner in the next day's Labour Day parades (in Toronto and other communities across Canada).
