More than 300 people are expected in Joliette March 18 for a solidarity benefit for the Sainte-Béatrix and Saint-Jean-de-Matha strikers.

Meanwhile, CUPE 301 members at La Ronde have settled a strike that began November 19. The mostly seasonal workers won wage increases of anywhere from 16 to 53 per cent on wages that range from $12 to $20 per hour.
