For the first time in 36 years, hundreds of city workers gather to tell council one thing.
The 750 CUPE Local 101 members, including co-op Fanshawe College students, will not come back to work until a fair deal has been reached.
CUPE national leader, Paul Moist, visited London to encourage the on-going strike that began earlier this week.
Moist promised students and interns that he will not give up on them.
“Let me make a promise to young members… We will not agree to take your benefits.”
Moist initiated discussions concerning pension plans, pay increases and job equality.
A list of the services that are impacted by the strike can be found on the City’s website.
XFM news reporter Corey Callaghan captured a video displaying CUPE members rallying around city hall earlier this week.
