USWA apply for CIBC staff in Sudbury

Steelworkers apply to represent CIBC employees

SUDBURY, ON, March 29 /CNW/ - United Steelworkers’ Ontario/Atlantic Director Wayne Fraser announced today that the union has applied to the Canada Industrial Relations Board (CIRB) to represent workers at five Sudbury branches of the CIBC.

If the union is certified, the workers will join about 1,000 other CIBC employees across Canada who belong to the Steelworkers’ union and, locally, workers at eight branches of TD-Canada Trust in Sudbury.

“When bank workers consider joining our union, they think about the billions of dollars in profits made by the banks,” said Fraser. “At the same time, banks are unilaterally altering employees’ compensation packages.

“These are basic issues of fairness, dignity and balance. They are what workers seek to correct when they join a union.”

The United Steelworkers represents over 255,000 men and women working in every sector of Canada’s economy.
