OTTAWA, July 1, 2015 /CNW/ - Unifor members at GardaWorld are demonstrating in front of the TD Bank at 45 O'Connor Street in an effort to draw attention to their circumstances and press Garda to get back to the table to negotiate a fair settlement. TD Bank is one of Garda's major clients in Ottawa.
Garda workers in Ottawa have been locked out since May 15 and without a contract since October 2014.
An information picket will be taking place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 45 O'Connor Street.
Unifor Local 4266 represents 140 GardaWorld workers in Ottawa who make deliveries to banks such as TD, RBC, BNS, BMO and National Bank as well as other institutions.
GardaWorld, one of the largest private security and cash logistics firms in the world, generated over $1.8 billion in revenues last year.
Unifor is Canada's largest union in the private sector, representing more than 305,000 workers, including nearly 2,000 armoured car employees. It was formed Labour Day weekend 2013 when the Canadian Auto Workers and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers unions merged.
