North Bay and District Labour Council supporting striking Hearing Society employees
Striking Canadian Hearing Society employees have another fighter in their corner.
North Bay Labour Council president Henri Giroux says the council’s support is meant to strengthen the message of ‘having no contract for four years is unacceptable.
“We need to support these workers in North Bay because the Ontario government is systematically underfunding Northern Ontario.”
He says a message of solidarity is needed because the government will start with taking away these employees benefits which could lead to a trickle effect.
“What they take away from one, they take away from others. We are grateful for their fight and will continue to support their efforts.”
