Showing solidarity with striking workers at the Molson Coors plant

Striking workers at the Molson Coors plant in Etobicoke are not just fighting a stingy employer, they’re resisting Americanization and globalization, the President of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union says.

Thomas made the comments at a “Solidarity Barbecue” for 320 members of the Canadian Union of Brewery and General Workers Local 325. The workers went on strike January 12 in a bid to fend off Molson Coors’ demands for deep cuts to wages, pensions, and benefits for all workers. 

“It’s a clear attack on the middle class,” said Thomas, who has already called on OPSEU members to boycott Molson Coors products. “We will not stand for it. I support the striking Molson Coors workers 100 per cent, and I know OPSEU members do, too.
