especially if you have a red & black one. Hope to see you there. -M.
Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada
LABOUR SOLIDARITY RALLY TUESDAY JANUARY 27TH 6:00 PM
WHY? Help support brothers and sisters involved in an increasingly
desperate struggle to earn a fair first contract from TORONTO 1'S
parent company CRAIG MEDIA. A-CHANNEL Edmonton has been on strike
for close to 5 months now with NO movement from DREW CRAIG and his
merry band of corporate greed-mongers. Most employees in the
company make 40-60% LESS PAY than those doing the same job in the
same market We¹re certainly not asking for GLOBAL or CTV type
money, but an average salary of $27,000/year is just not acceptable
for a job that requires an average investment of 3 years education.
Ratings in Edmonton have fallen almost 60% since the strike, but
apparently that's not enough, ratings for their flag-ship station
TORONTO 1 must also be hit for us to reach a fair settlement.

WHO? There will be many speakers on labour issues including
Federal NDP LEADER JACK LAYTON, striking employees, and many
representatives from labour and civil rights groups from across
the province.

WHEN? Time and date are listed above, there is a live broadcast from
7-8:00 pm that we hope to affect.

WHERE? Where it matters most, the TORONTO 1 studio, office at 25
ONTARIO STREET, on the corner of King and Ontario (5 blocks east of Jarvis).
SHOW UP LOUD, NASTY, AND READY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

MORE INFO? If you want to be a speaker, or just have any more
questions on the rally call MIKE ORMEROD AT 1-780-709-0547 or
email remotehq@telus.net
