Solidarity Rally at Carnival’s Shareholders Meeting
Thu, Apr 17, 2014 at 07:30 AM
Support Striking Workers at Crown Holdings in Canada
Since Sept. 6, 2013, 120 USW members having been walking the picket line at Crown’s Toronto metal packaging facility in an attempt to fend off the company’s ruthless cuts, including a two-tier wage plan that would permanently reduce new and younger workers’ wages by up to $9/hour.
We are sending an important message to Carnival’s CEO Arnold Donald, who is also a Crown Holdings director, that we hold him responsible for Crown’s union busting. He can’t hide in the boardroom anymore – he can and must act to stop Crown’s attacks.
There are literally tens of thousands of union members and retirees who can afford to take Carnival’s cruises because of good union wages and decent retirements, and Donald is slapping all working people in the face with these demands.
We are exposing each member of Crown’s board of directors and holding them accountable for the company’s shameful position towards our members. Please join USW members traveling from Toronto and show your support for the Crown strikers.
