Rally to support Chronicle Herald workers Dec 14

December 14, 2016 Did you know?

Dear Unifor members,


It’s been 326 days since The Chronicle Herald newsroom staff began their strike. Their employer continues to ignore requests to bargain, despite members of the Halifax Typographical Union (HTU) offering a 17% pay cut.


December 14 Rally – 7pm


Tomorrow, we encourage you to join their rally outside the Herald’s print facility in the Bedford Industrial Park.  Matthew Blois, President of Local 2215 and Atlantic Regional Council Vice Chair, will be presenting a cheque to the HTU in the amount of $3,000.


Bring your Unifor flags and join us:


Where:     311 Bluewater Rd, Bedford Industrial Park.

When:      7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
