Workers at the Canadian Hearing Society have been on strike across Ontario since March 6th. These workers provide vital services to the Deaf, Deafened, Orally Deaf and Hard of Hearing community. 90% of the strikers are women, and 40% of the membership come from the deaf and hard of hearing community themselves. They have been without a contract for 4 years and are facing cuts to their sick leave and continued wage freezes.
Our solidarity is crucial to show the workers – and CHS management – that the strikers have broad support in the labour community. Let’s help striking 2073 members win a fair deal!
Join us for an Ottawa-wide CUPE show of lunch-hour solidarity:
When: Thursday March 23, 2017, noon-1pm
Where: The Canadian Hearing Society, 2197 Riverside Drive, Ottawa, ON
CUPE District Council will be providing food for the strikers. Contact the Ottawa District CUPE Council if you are able to attend and bring members out: [email protected].
