Support Debro Steel Workers in Brampton, Ontario
January 19, 2010, 2:25 PM EST
CAW President Ken Lewenza is urging CAW local unions to provide financial support for CAW Local 252 members who work at Debro Steel in Brampton, Ontario who have been on strike since November 22.
"There is no question that this remains a difficult dispute, as the employer has tabled numerous concessions," said CAW President Ken Lewenza.
The employer wants to phase out sick days, is attacking new hires rates, and is demanding overtime changes that would mean no overtime after 40 hours. Local 252 represents 36 workers at Debro Steel.
Cheques should be made payable to CAW Local 252 and sent to Abbot Harvey, President, CAW Local 252, 1343 Matheson Blvd., Unit 12, Mississauga, Ontario, L4W 1R1.
