Support striking workers at Canada Malting

Members of UFCW 1118 who work at Canada Malting in Calgary began strike action on August 24, after voting by 80% to reject the company's final offer.

A total of 67 workers are now walking the picket line at 3316 Bonnybrook Road S.E., Calgary, between 6 a.m. and midnight. They'd welcome support on the line from all in the labour movement, so please drop by when you can.

The major issue in the dispute is the company's insistence on moving from a defined benefits pension plan to a defined contributions plan.
