Our members, who are currently on strike from the RM of Springfield, held a rally this morning in front of the Springfield Municipal office. We made sure the staff inside heard our voices, loud and clear!

CTV Winnipeg interviewed OE987 Business Representative Trevor Yuriy at the rally to discuss the strike. Trevor said “The elected officials all make more than any of the surrounding municipalities. What’s more hurtful is the majority of the people walking the picket lines work and live in this municipality and the municipality is using rate payer taxes to pay contractors to perform the work their employees would normally be doing. All along we’ve offered to continue to perform the work if they would let us go to work and let the mediation solve the contract dispute.”
