USW Local 1-2017 would like to remind the general public that USW members have legal picket lines set up at Bootjack Rd, Gavin Lake Rd. and the “Ditch Road”.
These 200+ workers and their families are now into their 7th week on the picket lines and we ask that the public, local suppliers and contractors respect their picket lines. We are hoping for community support to help us bring this job action to a conclusion. A return to work benefits everybody! Our members could then go back to contributing their earnings back into our community. Members would also like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to the people who have brought their delicious homemade buns/bread/chili/lasagna to them on the picket line. Your contributions have been immensely appreciated! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the local USW office at 250-398-8248.
