For many long months the workers employed at the TD Centre in Toronto by the property management company Cadillac Fairview have been locked out. The workers are represented by Local 2300 of the CEP Union of Canada. As the following from the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty (OCAP) says there will be an information picket this Saturday at the Toronto Eaton Centre. If you live down Toronto way consider coming out and lending a hand.
SATURDAY: Info Picket at Yonge & Dundas for Locked out Workers – CF61‏:
please forward widely...
**All Out – Info Picket for Locked out Workers – CF 61Yonge & Dundas**
Toronto Eaton Centre
Saturday December 19th
12 noon to 2 p.m.
*This past summer, Cadillac Fairview - a multi million dollar company, locked out 61 workers. Some of these folks had 20 years of service or more at the workplace but that did not stop the employer from then firing them all a month later.
Since that time, the workers - also known as the CF 61, have been standing strong and holding the picket line out front of their workplace at the Toronto Dominion Centre.
Now, Cadillac Fairview has gone even further to target these workers by forcing their picket tent to be torn down in the freezing cold of winter.
Join workers, labour, allies, supporters, students and community this Saturday December 19th at 12 noon to 2 p.m. to take this struggle to the heart of Cadillac Fairview’s empire – the Toronto Eaton Centre.
Let Toronto shoppers know that these workers have been tossed to the curb by the biggest Scrooge of them all – the corporate bosses at Cadillac Fairview and we are not going to put up with it!!!
Bring noisemakers, banners, placards, flags etc...
