The Co-op Refinery in Regina locked out its employees in an odious attempt to force the union to accept major concessions. Then they flew in scab “replacement workers,” to keep the refinery operating. UNIFOR is fighting for the rights of the locked-out workers by preventing fuel trucks from crossing the picket lines. They have our support. Arresting union leaders for fighting for their members’ rights is ugly and unacceptable in a democracy where workers have rights. ― Larry Brown, NUPGE President
