Congratulations to the Rexplas strikers, members of USW Local 8300 !

The Workers' Action Movement, and Socialist Action, congratulate the workers who won their strike at Rexplas in north Toronto. It's great that they resisted concessions and achieved a pay increase. This result sets a fine example of what can be done when workers decide to take positive job action, even in the difficult present circumstances of the pandemic and economic crisis. in solidarity, Barry W.

WAM demonstrates solidarity at OPSEU Local 5117 picket line

A bargaining unit of over 70 workers at the Black Creek Community Health Centre is on strike to demand a pay increase that is mandated by Ontario law.  In 2018 Bill 124 entitled all public sector workers a wage increase of 1 per cent per year, up to a total of three years.  These members of OPSEU Local 5117 want the improvement that workers at community health centers across the Greater Toronto Area received.  They are resisting concession demands by the bosses, who decline to come to the bargaining table and who are operating the Centre with scab labour.
