When: 12pm, Saturday 27 September 2014
Where: Elgin and Queen
Workers at the National Arts Centre are hosting a solidarity barbecue at Elgin and Queen to celebrate a tentative agreement reached with NAC management on 26 September.
The 70 workers, members of Local 70291 of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), had been negotiating a new contract for almost three years. On September 5, they voted overwhelmingly to strike. The tentative agreement still needs to be ratified by all members in the local via a vote that will be held as soon as possible.
Other PSAC members will join the NAC workers at the event in a show of solidarity.
