CORNWALL – Chanting various slogans and waving placards, hundreds of CUPE workers with the City of Cornwall demonstrated outside city hall this afternoon (Wednesday).
The noon hour rally also saw inside workers with Local 3251 join the picket line as they walked off the job just after midnight this morning.
“People rarely want to be on the picket line but here we are. We need a willing partner in the city to resolve this strike,” Pete Lebrun, president of CUPE 3251, representing 150 full-time workers as well as part-time, temporary and student workers. He urged residents to talk to their city councillor. “It is an election year, we know who not to vote for.”
