Letter of solidarity to Marianne Hladun, PSAC, from CUPE Local 500 President Gord Delbridge in support of striking workers
August 16, 2017 at 2:54 PM
I am writing on behalf of the over 5,000 members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, Local 500, to express our solidarity to the members of PSAC/UCTE Local 50600 who are currently on strike.
We applaud your actions to send a clear message to the Winnipeg Airports Authority that the use of contractors to do the work of your members is unacceptable.
In addition to expressing our solidarity, the Local’s executive officers and staff will be respecting the picket line and will not be using the Winnipeg airport until the strike is resolved.
Once again, on behalf of our members, I offer you our support and solidarity in your efforts to reach a fair collective agreement.
CUPE Local 500 President
