Unifor Holding Rallies Over Softwood Lumber Negotiations

Posted on Monday, June 19, 2017 08:37 AM

Unionized mill workers are going to be rallying today across Canada.

It's to encourage the federal government to reach a negotiated softwood deal with the US before any more jobs are lost.

Unifor President Jerry Dias says it's already having an impact with more than 12 hundred lay-offs already in Quebec.

Protests will be taking place in five cities altogether. 

The only one in Ontario will be held in Thunder Bay this afternoon at Resolute Forest Products at 1:00.
