Protesters

SENT ON BEHALF OF JOSEPHINE PETCHER

TO:  ALL LOCALS AND NATIONAL REPRESENTATIVES IN THE GTA

PLEASE JOIN THE PICKET LINE for our twenty-nine Local 1285 members ON STRIKE at Vast Auto in Brampton, and tell Vast Auto that our members deserve a FAIR AGREEMENT!

The strike started at 12:01am Sunday morning, and already it appears that Vast Auto is trying to operate by having salaried staff and temporary agency workers SCAB our members work.   Our members negotiated their first collective agreement three years ago.  The main outstanding issues in this round are wages and benefits.  The employer walked away from the bargaining table and insists on paying poverty-level wages here, while paying employees elsewhere much higher.

Members are out on the picket line 24-7, but the most crucial hours are from 7:30am-8:00pm.

THE PICKET LINE IS AT:

VAST AUTO

10 DRIVER RD., BRAMPTON (NORTHEAST CORNER OF DRIVER RD. AND AIRPORT RD.)

Driver Rd. is south of Steeles Ave., and just east from Airport Rd.

Any questions can be directed to Maurice Kenny, Local 1285 1st VP at  maurice@uniforlocal1285.ca

In solidarity,

Josephine
