Canadian Workers Protest Against American Employer in Philadelphia
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A busload of Canadian workers who were forced on strike by Philadelphia-based Crown Holdings will be picketing tomorrow morning outside the company's headquarters.
The United Steelworkers (USW) members were forced on strike on Sept. 7, 2013, even though Crown doubled its profits and gave its Toronto workers an award for being one of the safest, most productive and most profitable plants in the company's worldwide empire.
Workers in Toronto are rejecting a demand that new and younger workers be placed on a permanent lower wage scale and other cuts. The USW is escalating its campaign in Philadelphia and worldwide.

WHEN: Tuesday, Nov. 19, 9:00 a.m.
