NORWEGIAN UNION ON SYMPATHY STRIKE AT FALCONBRIDGE

(Toronto) The Norwegian Chemical Workers Uion went on strike this week in support of Canadian Auto Workers union members on strike in Sudbury against Falconbridge's massive concession demands.

The strike by CAW/Mine Mill Local 598 members is in its fourth month.

The extraordinary action by the Norwegian workers emphasizes the extent of workers' anger at the concession demands which come close to a declaration of union-busting by the company.

Workers at the Norwegian refinery, one of the world's largest, refine material produced by Falconbridge in Sudbury and other locations around the world.
