Media Advisory - Canadian union joins forces with Madison workers

OTTAWA, Feb. 23 /CNW/ - Leaders from one of Canada's largest private sector unions, the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union will join labour leaders in Madison, Wisconsin tomorrow in a show solidarity with the striking public sector workers.

CEP Secretary-Treasurer Gaetan Menard will meet with counterparts to discuss strategic measures of support and bring back to Canada a first-hand account of events as they unfold.

"This is not just an attack against public sector unions, it's an attack against all those who seek fairness in the workplace through their trade unions," says CEP President Dave Coles. "Canadian unions have been battered by membership losses and anti-worker policies of right-wing governments. I have no doubt that the situation in Wisconsin could by the thin edge of the wedge for Canada."
