Canadian IATSE Members Pledge $10,000 to Support Wisconsin Workers

TORONTO, ON - The Canadian membership of the IATSE has pledged to contribute $10,000 to support workers in Wisconsin.  After recent events in the state that amount to nothing more than union-busting, the two Canadian Districts of the IATSE expressed a desire to show Wisconsinites that support for their cause is not constrained by borders.

International President Matthew D. Loeb stated, “Canadian Members of the IATSE recognize the scope and significance of this struggle.  It is heartening to see members from across Canada united with our brothers and sisters in the USA.  We are galvanized by the desire to defend against these attacks on collective bargaining rights and the middle class lifestyle, which includes access to decent benefits and the ability to retire with dignity.“
