Thousands turn out at Labour Day rally

HEU members from across the Lower Mainland showed their support for workers at Telus, CBC, and Teck-Cominco at a Labour Day Rally in Burnaby.

Telecommunications Workers Union members were locked out on July 21, after more than four and a half years without a collective agreement.

And on August 15, after 15 months of unsuccessful bargaining, the CBC locked out 5,500 employees nationwide — members of the Canadian Media Guild (CMG). Employees at Trail’s Teck Cominco have been on strike since July 19.
