Today Unifor again chose to attack local businesses by illegally erecting fencing around a Co-op site in Regina as a result of the labour dispute they initiated at the Co-op Refinery Complex (CRC) in December.
On Monday, Unifor moved its escalated picketing activities to Weyburn, blocking access to Prairie Sky Co-op’s Crossroads location at the intersection of Highways 13 and 39.
One day after releasing a disgusting video of replacement workers that puts their personal safety at risk, Unifor’s Toronto-based leadership has now decided to put public safety at risk.
FCL’s profits have a purpose. That’s because every dollar of our profits stays right here to support Western Canadians and make a difference where we work and live.
Unifor has released a video featuring replacement workers, demonstrating lack of respect and tactics not in line with Canadian values.
There was picketing at FCL’s home office today, but Unifor 594 has refused to negotiate in any way since Sept. 26, 2019.
The Co-op Refinery Complex (CRC) is pleased with the injunction it has received against Unifor effective Dec. 24, 2019.
Despite a decrease in sales and profitability in 2019, FCL will still be returning $649 million to local co-ops and their Western Canadian communities.
Unifor’s announcement calling for a boycott of community-owned local co-ops across Western Canada comes as no surprise and is out of touch with Western Canada.
