Tell the City of Ottawa to Return to the Table

ATU 279 has been on strike for 50 days against concessions demanded by the City of Ottawa. ATU members have already rejected those concessions in a vote conducted by the Ministry of Labour. Their bargaining committee has offered to refer those demands to mediation and arbitration, but the City has refused.

Canadian cities don't often engage in blatent union-busting, but this looks like one of those times. ATU and the Ottawa Labour Council are asking you to take 30 seconds (no more or your money back!) and send a message to Ottawa's Mayor and Council asking them to return to the table.
