On June 13th in Leamington, South Essex Community Council – SECC hosted an unforgettable ESL class, featuring a special guest from ESDC! Workers received valuable print materials on labor rights, agency maps, mints, and an agenda to track their daily work hours. 📚🗺️🗓️

The event welcomed workers from Mexico and Guatemala, including some with 15+ years in Canada and newcomers with just a few months of experience. Our TeaMWork Project Liaison highlighted the importance of these resources, especially the tip-line sheet.

SECC and TeaMWork worked together to distribute summer kits packed with essentials for the warmer season ahead. Workers shared their feedback through a survey, and enjoyed a delicious meal of fried chicken, salad, and snacks.

Check out the photos to see the vibrant community spirit and dedication to empowering our hardworking TFWP and SAWP workers! 📸🤝🌍
