Dear brothers and sisters,

Teamsters have always been an ally of workers in the construction industry. This is why I am writing to you today.

The strike mandate that you have given your union reflects a generalized feeling of exasperation among workers. Together with the 125,000 Teamster members across Canada, I would like to say that we are totally behind you in your struggles.

Please know that Teamsters Canada wholeheartedly supports all your demands and backs you in your fight to be treated fairly.

There’s strength in numbers! In order to win this battle, I know that you will remain committed and steadfast for as long as it takes. The Teamsters union will be by your side throughout the negotiations and in the event of a strike, if it comes to that.

In Solidarity,

François Laporte
Teamsters Canada
