CAW Takes Call for Action to Ottawa
May 29, 2007 - 7:00am EST
“We are asking every local union within reasonable driving distance to Ottawa to fully participate in this important protest rally to pressure the Harper government to start protecting Canadian jobs now and for the future,” said CAW National President Buzz Hargrove.

The event is the culmination of the local leadership meetings and community forums that have been held across the country through out March, April and May as part of the CAW's Manufacturing Matters campaign.

For local unions that require buses, the National union will share bussing costs on a 50-50 basis. All members, including retirees, are encouraged to attend. The CAW will hold a lunch and pre-rally meeting at the Ottawa Congress Centre from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Participants should arrive at the Congress Centre by 11:00 a.m. to be on time for lunch and to pick up their t-shirt and bandana. The CLC rally starts at 12:30 and ends at 2:00 p.m.

For more information or to confirm your bus numbers, contact Paul Forder, Director, Membership Mobilization & Campaigns: 1-800-268-5763 x 774 or paul.forder@caw.ca .
