The 38 women were locked out January 24 over a restructuring plan that would cost nine women all of them union activists or members of the bargaining committee their jobs.
CUPE has launched an online action to let members show their solidarity by sending an e-mail to Yellow Brick House management and to Community and Social Services Minister Sandra Pupatello and the local MPP and Finance Minister Greg Sorbara.
The workers who have been locked out are the ones who did all the work while I was at Yellow Brick House, one former resident says on CUPEs web site. If anyone should be locked out it should be management. They are the ones who are not there for us women.
Help support CUPE 3636s struggle for fair treatment. Please take two minutes to send an e-mail. Visit: http://cupe.ca/action/yellowbrickhouse
