Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union members at the Montreal Petro-Canada refinery have ratified a new collective agreement, ending a lockout that begin 13 months ago.
CEP President Dave Coles has written the Canadian Labour Congress requesting that the CLC and its affiliates end the boycott campaign against Petro Canada. Coles said the solidarity of the labour movement in Canada and abroad played a strong role in ensuring the company came back to the bargaining table to negotiate a fair agreement.
