On Wednesday November 14, OPSEU
Locals at St. Clair College set up a food stand in support
of 22 members of Local 137. These cafeteria workers
(all women) employed by Chartwells, earn wages far below
other workers doing exactly the same work. Just in case
these women are on strike in January 2013, CAAT Support
members handed out OPSEU lunch bags for them to use if the
cafeteria is closed! Hundreds of students and staff
came out at noon to support these women workers in their
quest for good jobs and a living wage in Windsor.
