The Ontario Labour Relations Board has conferred status as a union to the breakaway Canadian Construction Workers Union led by Tony Dionisio.

It sets the stage for an intense six weeks of recruiting, raiding, cajoling and persuading, not to mention a head-to-head confrontation with Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) Local 183, Dionisio├é’s former bailiwick.

“I’m thrilled,” said Dionisio, who was ousted as the business manager of Local 183 after a long battle last year. “This is just the beginning. We plan to go forward from today and build a union.”
