CAW AND CUPW SUPPORT RALLY - JUNE 17, 2011
AIR CANADA and POSTAL WORKERS SUPPORT RALLY
Dear Sisters and Brothers:
As you are aware, our 3800 sisters and brothers at Air Canada are on strike and have been threatened with back-to-work legislation within 15 hours of the strike commencing.
Canada Post (controlled by the government) has now locked out all CUPW members and once again, the Harper government has threatened to legislate them all back to work within hours of the announcement.
This is an unprecedented attack on workers and the right to free and fair collective bargaining and we need your support.
Please find attached a copy of our letter for a rally in support of CAW and CUPW members on the picket line.
The rally is:
Date: Friday, June 17, 2011
Time: 5:30 pm
Place: Vancouver Public Library Square
350 West Georgia
I have also attached a rally notice that should be posted and circulated to our members.
I look forward to seeing you this Friday, June 17th at 5:30 pm with members from your workplace and friends and allies from within the community.
Please make EVERY EFFORT to attend and forward this message widely.
National Representative, CAW-Canada
at 2:54 PM
