TRURO, NS, June 6, 2019 /CNW/ - Unifor is hosting a rally and BBQ to support Tandus Carpets workers, and to demand the company meet to negotiate a closure agreement.
Since the closure announcement, Unifor has made repeated requests to meet with the company in an effort to negotiate a fair closure agreement.
"We would expect the company would offer a generous severance package for the employees given all their years of loyalty and dedicated service and work," said Lana Payne, Atlantic Regional Director. "Not only have they refused to offer any form of compensation to our members, they have been unwilling to meet with the union to discuss severance and other issues related to the announced closure."
WHERE: Tandus Carpets, 435 Willow St., Truro
WHEN: Friday, June 7, 2019 at 12:00 p.m.
WHO: Atlantic Regional Director Lana Payne, Atlantic Area Director Linda MacNeil, Local 4612 President Melissa Martell, members of Local 4612 (Tandus Carpets) supporters from other Unifor Locals, and invited guests
