Unifor Local 88

Goderich mine strike

Retirees. There is a bus going out of Unifor Local 636 on Thursday, June 28 at 9:45 a.m. and then bus will return to Unifor Local 636 around 5-5:30 p.m. We need to go to Goderich and show support to our members there on strike. This is not an ideal time for the miners, as there is no need for road salt until the end of the year. So while scab miners from the U.S. dig out the salt, we are going to have a rally and BBQ with the strikers. As this is a weekday rally, we need as many retirees as possible to help bolster the strikers. Please contact Joe Graves at… joe.1.graves@gm.com  if you will help fill the bus. In solidarity Brian
