Sears Canada Lockout Update
Holdings Corporation has 3800 retail stores and over $50 billion in
annual revenues in Canada and the U.S. On October 1, 2007, Sears Canada
locked out 70 appliance repair technicians in Metro Vancouver, Canada.
Sears said the technicians could return to work under imposed terms that
do not include any scheduled wage increases for four years, allow Sears
to schedule split workweeks without two consecutive days off, eliminate
certain overtime premiums, and remove a pre-existing paid holiday. Sears
also said the technicians returning to work would not pay union dues.
Almost four months later, the lockout continues. The locked-out
technicians are asking North American workers to boycott Sears stores in
order to get Sears back to bargaining.
Please help by telling Sears you support the locked-out technicians and
by forwarding this page to persons you think will be interested in
helping. Go to the LabourStart Link by
