Help Local 597

Sister and Brothers,

One year ago today, an American employer locked-out 32 Unifor members in Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador, in an attempt to bust our union. Our community in St. John’s is rallying this afternoon in support of these workers.

Here’s how you can help from home!

Please take a few seconds right now to sign up for our Thunderclap, which will post a one-time message to your Twitter or Facebook account in unison with 100s of other members. Tomorrow, the D-J Composites CEO will hear our voices all the way from his home in Kansas.

In solidarity,

Jerry Dias

National President
