NORTH BAY Members of CUPE Local 72 are getting the support from across the province that will allow them to remain on the picket line until North Bay Hydro agrees to negotiate, said President Ken Hull.

CUPE has issued an appeal to its locals and other unions in Ontario to adopt a striker. Thousands of dollars have already been donated, said Assistant Regional Director Roger Loiselle.

“We will take care of these people in North Bay,” he said. “We’re not going to let the company starve them out. We will take care of them financially and we will get them back to work.”

North Bay Hydro’s bullying tactics are not working, said Hull, noting that the buck stops at city council.

“It’s time for council to act on behalf of the real owners of North Bay Hydro, the residents of the city,” Hull said.
