Being part of a union that prides itself on advocating for working people and their rights means that we must be willing to step up and defend the sisters and brothers in our union. Right now I am asking for your help; your voice and advocacy is needed.
There are 65 striking workers from Unifor Local 229, all women, at Port Arthur Health Centre who have been on the picket line for over 11 weeks now; the strike began on April 9.
