On May 16 to 19, CCU President John Hanrahan was proud to join the picket line with the striking workers of NSUPE Local 19 in Prince Edward Island. The picketers set up a line to protest the first mobile blood clinic on the Island during their eight month strike for benefits and guaranteed hours of work.
“I am inspired by the courage and solidarity of our strong sisters in Local 19”, says Hanrahan. “Their struggle against precarious employment perfectly embodies the principles of gender equality and decent work that are the cornerstones of today’s labour movement.”
