Small victory for striking Cascade Aerospace employees

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

These workers on strike let out a sigh of relief over the weekend.

Over 440 Cascade Aerospace Employees were taken to court by their employer after picketing on the grounds of their Abbotsford business.

The company sought an injunction saying the union pickets were unlawful and obstructed access to the hangars at Abbotsford airport.
UNIFOR’s Gavin McGarrigle says although still striking, the employees did have a small victory as a judge found on Friday afternoon that the union was picketing peacefully and were in no violation of the law.

“Workers here want to make sure that we’re going to have aerospace jobs in the Lower Mainland in B.C. and so far we don’t have any firm commitments. We really want to get back to the bargaining table so we can talk about getting these workers back to work.”

Workers have been on strike since June fourth in a dispute over equal benefits for young workers.

They say they will continue to peacefully picket until their voices are heard.

  1. Now that’s some quality writing. Are we supposed to guess what the victory was? No where in the article does the writer actually say what the victory was.
