TWU solidarity picket set for Thursday, August 11 in Victoria
There will be a summer solidarity rally for TWU workers on the line in Victoria on Thursday, August 11 at 5:00 pm, 826 Yates Street (near Blanshard).
The BC Fed-organized rally is another in a series of events being staged across the province on a regular basis as Telus continues to lock out TWU workers.
HEU members will recognize the heavy-handed tactics that Telus is using to divide workers and pit union member against union member while refusing to bargain a decent collective agreement.
And HEU members are very aware of how important the support of other trade unionists and the public-at-large is during a labour dispute after their own experience on health care lines in May 2004.
TWU members working at Telus across from the HEU Provincial Office in Burnaby are using the union’s facilities as their strike headquarters.
