A Black Day in Canadian Labour History

UWOSA members were planning to head to the Electro-Motive picket line this afternoon to provide support to the locked out workers. We are cancelling these plans, as we have just heard that Progress Rail is closing the London plant, putting 450 employees out of work.

We have spoken with their CAW representative who has informed us that, although the affected workers are shocked and upset, they remain committed to lobbying the government for changes.

UWOSA's financial donation will be sent to help alleviate the hardship these workers are experiencing. We will also do what we can in future to provide support to our fellow unionized workers during these difficult times.
