MoveUp workers fight to preserve retirement security
Saturday, March 16, 2019 marks the 54th day these workers have been on the picket line. Please join them for a Rally and free BBQ this Saturday. Come down to show your support for these workers and to learn more about their fight to save the pension plan. If you are unable to join them please go to CorporateGreed.ca to send an email Westminster Savings CEO Gavin Toy asking him to treat workers fairly.
MoveUP workers at Westminster Savings Credit Union’s Shaughnessy Station branch in Port Coquitlam, BC walked off the job on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 and set up a picket line.
The workers have been without a collective agreement for over two years and the employer has been unwilling to move off a proposal that will significantly impair these workers’ retirement security and create inequity in the workplace.
You can help support these workers by telling Westminster Savings Credit Union that their workers deserve to be treated with respect and dignity.
Email email@example.com or call 604-517-0100 and tell Westminster Savings CEO Gavin Toy to “treat workers fairly so they can go back to serving members.”
