UPDATED, now with even more rallies!!! I filed this story about a Wednesday rally at the Spring Garden Road Tim Hortons this Wednesday. Couple of hours later I received a news release issued by the Halifax-Dartmouth & District Labour Council.

It’s early days, but labour activists in Halifax want to establish a Workers Action Centre in Halifax. Such a centre could make a big difference for non-unionized workers in precarious jobs. There’s not a whole lot of money, and the centre will start small, relying on borrowed office space and volunteers. But a modest start may actually work to its advantage.
