Hartland, N.B. – May 12, 2016 – UFCW Canada Local 1288P, the union representing striking members at Covered Bridge Potato Chips in Hartland, New Brunswick, and UFCW Canada’s National Office are calling on activists to support the next phase in the Covered Bridge workers’ struggle for fairness and respect.
Last winter, the Covered Bridge members were forced out on strike because – for the past two years – the owners of Covered Bridge have said “NO” to paying their workers a fair living wage and recognizing basic workplace rights.
So we are asking for your help to get the company back to the bargaining table to negotiate a fair first contract.
Help get Covered Bridge back to the negotiating table by sending a message to Aldi, the major U.S. retailer that contracts Covered Bridge to produce its SimplyNature potato chips.
Tell the owners of Aldi to stop contracting with Covered Bridge Potato Chips until the workers at Covered Bridge have a fair deal in place. By sending a message today, you can help achieve fairness for the workers at Covered Bridge!
