Solidarity Picket #4 with CUPE 2073
April 28 @ 11:40 am - 12:20 pm
The workers of CUPE local 2073 at the Canadian Hearing Society (CHS) have now been on strike for 7 weeks.
Join Solidarity Ottawa’s Workers Action Group back on the picket line for the 4th time to support the CHS workers’ demand for a fair contract this Friday, April 28, at 12pm.
Picketline location: 2197 Riverside Drive (near Bank Street)
CHS workers provide critically important services to the Deaf, Deafened, Orally Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community, and what they are now going through is a testament to the accumulated effects of capitalist austerity, funding cuts, and contracting out of services that should be well funded and public.
The Ottawa based members of CUPE local 2073 have repeatedly expressed appreciation for the outside support that has been mobilized.
