We have a Throwback Thursday post today! We have archival footage from 40 years ago when CUPE 960 Library Workers went on strike to protect contracting out language, the long service bonus, and fair wages for women to their male comparators. These workers stood for what they believe in and were on strike for one day. They were successful in fighting off concessions, and instead of the 25 percent wage increase they were seeking, they received an 11 percent increase. "We did alright," said our 1975 local President Olga Tilk, "But next time we'll fight a little harder."
