For more than 1,000 days, 92 members of USW Local 1-500 have been on strike against their employer, Brantford ECP. Last week, the employer closed the plant, but the struggle continues.

On Friday, June3, join our striking Steelworker sisters and brothers to send a message to shareholders of Intertape Polymers, the parent company.

WHEN: Friday, June 3, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
WHERE: In front of the Royal York Hotel, 100 Front Street West
WHY: To stand in solidarity with the 92 members of USW Local 1-500, who have been on strike for more than 1,000 days, and to demand a fair settlement.
