Rally for Locked Out Ikea Workers – July 20th 2013
On May 13, 2013, IKEA Canada locked out the workers at their store in Richmond, members of Teamsters Local 213, in an attempt to force them to accept a two-tiered wage system and reductions in benefit eligibility. The workers have remained strong over the past two months and are determined to continue the fight against this wealthy employer’s attempts to ratchet down wages and benefits. In order to be successful they are looking for support from the rest of the labour movement.
To help show our support at this critical stage, we are asking you to mobilize your union members to come out to a rally in support of these workers (revised rally poster attached: IkeaLockoutRally-20July13). Details are as follows:
When: Saturday, July 20, 2013 – 11:00 am
Where: IKEA Richmond store, 3320 Jacombs Road
