This is a financial appeal on behalf of the 127 members of Local 2300 on strike at the District of Kitimat, a municipality of Kitimat, BC.
The strike began on February 28.
After bargaining two months past the expiry of their collective agreement, the workers soundly rejected the employer’s final offer.
The employer has contracted out massive amounts of work and more than half of the bargaining unit are precarious workers with no benefits.
These workers are fighting for harassment protection, health and safety training, benefits and contracting-out protection language that will secure their future.
These workers are in a difficult situation and could use your full support. Locals are asked to provide as much financial support as possible.
Cheques should be made payable to “Unifor Local 2300.”
All donations should be mailed to:
Martin McIlwrath, Business Agent
