BUSES TO “BRIDGING THE GAP” A SOLIDARITY RALLY – MONDAY MARCH 22
Vale Inco workers are in the fight of their lives. It’s our fight too! Vale Inco wants to take away workers’ pensions, seniority rights, and their share of the profits.
They’ve been holding the line for eight months. The battle is having a devastating effect on these workers, their families and the community. After this long, something has to give. It’s not going to be the workers! Not here in Ontario. Not now, not ever!
The time for solidarity is now!
A Solidarity Rally will be held in Sudbury at 4:30 pm on Monday, March 22 at the USW Hall, 66 Brady Street, Sudbury.
