Solidarity Rally at Blue Water Bridge

Point Edward, ON, - The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) will be holding a mass solidarity rally in support of our members who are on strike, which work for Blue Water Bridge on:

  • When: Sunday, November 27, 2016 at 2 pm
  • Where: Blue Water Bridge, Point Edward, ON

The Federal Bridge Corporation, which is responsible for Blue Water Bridge, has been dishonest in its claims that it is not asking for cuts to workers benefits and working conditions. “Why would the workers be outside in the cold picketing if there were no cuts?”, states Paul Haney, Local President. “Workers don’t just go on strike without a reason. If they were serious about ending the strike they would take those cuts off the table.”

The Ontario Federation of Labour, which represents over one million workers has endorsed this rally, adding the combined strength of all its 54 affiliated unions.
