CROWN HOLDINGS INC. and CORPORATE CANADA
The strike at Crown Holdings plant in Weston illustrates all that is wrong with corporate Canada – greed, callousness and income inequality. For two long winters the 120 Steelworkers have walked the picket line in stubborn refusal to betray the next generation of workers. Despite being recognised as the most productive plant of Crown’s 140 facilities, the company has rewarded the Toronto employees with a demand that all new hires be paid half of the current salary.The workers said no, and were forced on strike to defend their principled position. As the months dragged on the company brought in strike-breakers to run the plant and supply the beer and soft drink producers in Ontario. Each time bargaining resumes the company makes its offer worse. It’s time to ramp up solidarity for the Crown Strike.www.bottlesnotcans.ca
