    VANCOUVER, Sept. 29 /CNW/ - Join CUPE picketers dressed in formal attire
at a performance outside the Orpheum Saturday evening from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Picketline-renowned CUPE 15 diva Karen Hynes will perform pieces composed by
the artist and her ensemble from their newly-released CD titled "Ode to end
the strike". Only 20 copies of the limited edition CD will be available for
purchase by donation. Vancouver Symphony concertgoers are being encouraged to
respect CUPE 15's picket line and enjoy the performance on the line.

                     Date: Saturday, September 29, 2007
                           Time: 5:30 p.m. - 8 p.m.
                 Location: On picket line outside the Orpheum

    Ms. Hynes, who when not on strike works as an Inspections Division clerk
for the City of Vancouver, will be performing pieces composed during the civic
strike of 2007, such as:

                                The Picketers
                           Back on the Picket line
                       I hope I still have my city job
                         Larry did it, why can't you?

    These popular songs have inspired and kept up civic worker morale during
the two-and-a-half month strike.
    Ms. Hynes will be available for autographs after the performance.

    This complimentary picket line performance is brought to you by the CUPE
15 employees at the Orpheum, forced on strike by the City of Vancouver since
July 23rd, 2007.

    Please respect our picket line. You may wish to ask the Vancouver
Symphony Orchestra for a refund or exchange of your ticket.

                     Support fairness for civic workers.
