"For me, union is everything. It’s important for us to continue the fight and to trust the union – it’s a movement that lifts people up." Maria hopes future generations take up the torch passed on by current and past activists.

Every Labour Day, Maria Bocangel makes a point of bringing along co-workers and family members to march through the streets of downtown Toronto.
