For all they've done for us... Demand care standards for them

Every person living in an Ontario long-term care facility should be entitled to quality care delivered with respect and dignity. Yet thousands of Ontarians know from their personal work experience or from the plight of their family member in long term care facilities that our province is not meeting this standard.

Tell Rezaul Chowdhury to end the lock-out

 

While D-J President spends the holidays at home, Canadian workers remain locked-out in the cold.

It’s been nearly a whole year now since 32 workers in a small Canadian town were locked out by their Kansas State based employer. Just days before Christmas, in December of 2016, Rezaul Chowdhury’s company, D-J Composites put its unionized workers on the street in one of the coldest climates in North America, in Gander, Newfoundland. These workers have walked a picket line outside the small aerospace manufacturing facility for nearly a year.

D-J Composites was even found guilty of bargaining in bad faith by the provincial labour board, which is a serious violation of Canadian employment law. Chowdhury’s company’s idea of negotiating was to freeze or cut wages, gut seniority and try to bust the union.

Please support Unifor local 597 and send Chowdhury a message: Use the form below to write Rezaul Chowdhury, the owner of D-J Composites.

Then tweet your support for @Unifortheunion  using the hashtag #Unifor597
