Sisters and Brothers
As you may have heard there is a wildcat strike occurring right now in Edmonton. Fifteen RSMCs working out of the St Albert office, a suburb of Edmonton, walked out yesterday morning when they learned their pay was being cut due to route evaluations. In many cases this reduced their income by thousands of dollars.
The workers and supporters shortly after walking out set up picket lines. The wildcat is continuing today with pickets being set up early this morning. There was a support rally at 9am Alberta time that is still continuing. The employer is attempting to use contractors to deliver the mail but at this point the strikers and their supporters have stopped them from entering. The employer has S and I present and have called the police.
Several other locations in Edmonton have engaged in support actions such as mass coffee breaks and workfloor discussions.
Please tell your members what is going on and encourage them to support these workers by:
-Sending a support message to the Edmonton Local
-Mass coffee breaks to discuss the issues
-Whatever else they are willing to do
We need to give The Boss a message that we will not be treated like this
An Injury to one is an injury to all
