Push made to reinstate Canadian CU workers fired in strike
HAMILTON, Ontario (12/5/07)--Union members of First Ontario CU say they will push to reinstate employees fired during a lengthy strike at the credit unions annual meeting to be held tonight. Seven employees were fired during the strike. Striking workers padlocked the doors when they occupied the Queensdale and Upper Sherman branch on April 18, in an attempt to get the credit union to return to the bargaining table in the midst of a stalemate in a labor negotiation process (News Now May 24). The protest ended an hour after it began, when Hamilton police smashed a glass door to gain entry to the credit union. First Ontario’s new CEO Kelly McGiffen was contacted and asked to hold a meeting to discuss when the workers will be rehired, but a meeting hasn’t been held yet, said Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union Ontario Director Janice Best (The Hamilton Spectator Dec. 4). McGiffen stated that he’s confused by the union’s demand for worker reinstatement, because the strike-ending agreement called for all outstanding issues to be submitted to binding arbitration.
