NEWS RELEASE · 28th April 2015
On behalf of our union, IAFF Local 1304, we offer you our full support and our complete solidarity with the members of the District of Kitimat, Unifor Local 2300, who are currently in a dispute with their employers, with more than 120 workers participating in the strike which is affecting the District of Kitimat and its citizens.
We share the conviction of Local 2300 that a strike was the only choice to defend workers’ health and safety. We urge the District of Kitimat’s negotiators to come back to the negotiating table in order to agree on a fair and equitable contract. It would benefit both the workers and the District. We are in solidarity with Unifor Local 2300 and believe we all have the fundamental right to fair wages, full-time sustainable jobs to support families, and most importantly safe working conditions.
International Association of Fire Fighters Local 1304
