Labour Dispute: First Ontario Credit Union

Read about the women of COPE 343 who have been on strike at First Ontario Credit Union in Hamilton for over two months. As an act of solidarity, CAW 199, the union representing First Ontario workers in Niagara, organized a secondary picket of the credit union's Niagara Street branch in St. Catharines s few weeks back. Given the lack of progress in negotiations, it looks like the labour movement will have to step it up in order for a fair collective agreement to be reached. Credit union workers across the province are relying on these women to stand strong and not accept concessions. You can contact COPE 343 via this website.
