CAW Retired Workers Rally at MP Steven Fletcher's Office
April 20, 2011, 11:15 AM EST
Retired members of CAW Local 3005 will be protesting at Conservative MP Steven Fletcher's constituency office located at 110-3393 Portage Avenue, at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 21.
Local 3005 members are currently in a labour dispute with Magellan Group (Bristol Aerospace). The retired workers will be presenting a petition, protesting the main issue in the dispute wherein the Magellan Group is demanding to eliminate retirees' benefits.
The federal government has and is still providing funding to the Magellan Group for a new facility that is being built in Winnipeg and the retirees will be requesting that Steven Fletcher intervene to get Magellan back to the bargaining table.
