Shelter workers on strike in Napanee


Shelter workers at the Lennox and Addington Interval House (LAIH) initiated a strike on Friday, October 29, 2021.

They're on strike for fairness and as Local 414 President Gord Currie calls it, "Union 101."

Workers are seeking the same or similar language and benefits that sister agencies in neighbouring communities have, aiming to address issues of representation, disciplinary actions and job postings.

While the employer still won't give workers the respect they deserve, Katha Fortier, Unifor Assistant to the National President tells us how strong the support is from Napanee community members.
