TORONTO, Nov. 6, 2013 /CNW/ - Members representing OPSEU Local 262 and CUPE Local 966 will join forces at an information picket today in support of workers at the March of Dimes in Oakville (Local 262) who have been locked-out since Oct. 28.
Management has locked out the workers despite the fact the Ontario March of Dimes - a not-for-profit charity - has earned more than $900,000 in profits since 2010 and sits on assets across the province valued at more than $30 million. Its CEO is paid an annual salary of $270,000.
The agency locked-out the Oakville workers after they refused to accept a three-year freeze on their wages and cuts to their benefits. CUPE Local 966 is currently facing the same demands from management in its contract negotiations with the March of Dimes.
