Unifor delivers strike notice to Brink’s



October 15, 2017
Toronto – Unifor, representing more than 1,000 members in British Columbia and Ontario, has issued strike notice to Brink’s Canada Limited.
“Brink’s is standing by its refusal to staff its armoured cars to provide maximum safety to both workers and the public,” said Unifor National President Jerry Dias. “Unifor will not sign an agreement that puts lives in jeopardy.”  Click on the link below for more information.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Those of you who are long-time members will remember Brother Gordon Piper – Health & Safety activist, Local President, Local Rep, and friend. It’s almost 6 ½ years since he passed away, but we still feel his loss.

Gordie’s son – Gordon Piper Jr. – and his wife have a young daughter, and this past May they welcomed a son. However, the baby has had severe heart problems right from the start, and is currently awaiting a heart transplant.

This has been an incredible strain on the family in many ways, including financially. A friend of theirs has set up a Go Fund Me page to help the family out.

For all the information, please follow the link below.
