Who we are

Unifor represents workers across three units at the mine. Local 240 represents the office workers and Local 1959 represents workers at the Ojibway Mine and a separate unit at the evaporation processing fields. 

What's at stake?

Good union jobs like those at Windsor Salt help drive Windsor/Lasalle’s local economy.

Our strike is about fighting an employer bent on busting our union through a variety of strutural changes including outsourcing our work and limiting union participation in the workplace.

To help accomplish their goals, Windsor Salt has hired renown U.S. anti-union law firm Jackson Lewis to complicate negotiations.

Who is the employer?

This round of bargaining is the first since Windsor Salt was purchased by Stone Canyon Industries in 2021, a U.S-based private holding firm.
