NOTICE OF MOTION TO POST - RE: FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN QUEBEC



The following motion was passed unanimously at the Membership meeting held on Thursday, January 26th at the Union hall:

“That the membership offers an hour of pay per member each pay cheque to support the Brothers and Sisters in Alma until either the end of the lockout or July 1st at the latest.”

Information on motion:

As many of you know, Rio Tinto Alcan has locked out its workers at its Alma, QC smelter after the employer’s final offer, ahead of the December 31, 2011, contract expiry date, was overwhelmingly rejected by the Alma workers.

Contracting out is the only outstanding issue at the Alma smelter.

CAW workers in Quebec have pulled together with a financial contribution to the Steelworkers of 1 million dollars in support of their fight against our common employer, RTA.

This motion will be voted on at special Membership Meetings to be held at the Union Hall on:

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Morning Meeting: 7:00 a.m.

Evening Meeting: 7:00 p.m.
