CLC boycotts Petro-Canada
Published: October 28th 2008

The President of the Canadian Labour Congress announced a country-wide consumer boycott of Petro-Canada today, speaking to the national convention of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union. The boycott is part of a campaign in support of 260 Petro-Canada workers who have been locked-out of their jobs at the company's Montreal refinery.

"Canadians should not support any company that has the gall to wrap itself in our flag and use our maple leaf as part of its logo while it abuses its workers, ignores their rights as Canadian citizens and breaks the law by using scab labour. Shame on Petro-Canada."

Georgetti says the unions, provincial and territorial federations of labour, and local labour councils that make up the Canadian Labour Congress have agreed to support the Petro-Canada boycott. In the coming days they will ask their combined membership of over 3.2 million working people to avoid doing business with Petro-Canada until the labour dispute in Montreal is resolved.

"We invite all Canadians who share our values of fairness, respect for the law and respect for the rights of working people to join us. Wherever possible, if there is an alternative to doing business with Petro-Canada, please make use of the alternative products and services. If Petro-Canada wants to hurt these workers, then we'll see how they feel when 3.2 million workers return the favour," Georgetti said.
