Workers Blockade Bauer Plant in Waterloo
February 23, 2009, 1:35 PM EST
CAW members employed at Bauer Industries in Waterloo, Ontario have blockaded the plant, after management attempted to remove finished product from the facility on February 20.
The 35 workers, represented by CAW Local 1524, were told on February 13 that there would be no work until further notice and have been off the job since then.
The workers have not received their last pay cheque, vacation or termination pay.
Workers at Bauer produce textiles for vehicle seats.
CAW members are asked to lend support to the blockade which will continue through out the week.
