Personal emergency leave for auto workers

Ontario auto workers have been unfairly singled out with an Employment Standards Act exemption that provides a lesser standard of personal emergency leave than that given to other workers. Tell the Ontario government to fix this now! Sign the petition here.

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.

Support Local 597: Send a Letter to the Union-Busting President

Send a letter to Mr. Chowdhury, CEO of the union-busting D-J Composites. It’s time for the company to accept that their tactics are not working. They must negotiate.
Workers at D-J Composites were locked out by their American-based employer on December 19, 2016. They are members of Unifor, Local 597.
From the start, the company has used a variety of tactics to prolong the lockout and that violate labour laws. It became clear almost from the start that this employer wanted to break our union.
