Kincardine Westario Power workers, who have been on strike for 48 days, will see their numbers on the picket line swell, as busloads of autoworkers join them on the line tomorrow.
We are seeing a marked increase in community support, both in numbers on the picket line and in financial terms. The Westario CEO and board should know that other unionized workers are behind us, and the strikers will not be starved back to work, says Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) national representative Jim Keenan.
In addition to picket line support, CAW members are hosting a BBQ on behalf of the strikers (members of CUPE 255), in front of the strike headquarters on Queen Street in downtown Kincardine.
