From the January 6th edition of the Friday Morning After.
If 2011 was the year of popular uprisings, then 2012 is shaping up to the be the year of labour uprisings. We kick off 2012 with 2 stories about companies posting record profits while at the same time stiffing their workers.
First, we check in on London, ON, home of Electro-Motive Diesel. Second, it’s off to Quebec to see how Rio Tinto Alcan is treating its workers. Plus, a special bonus report on fracking earthquakes.
The Action Items can be heard every Friday around 8:40am on the Friday Morning After, CKUT 90.3FM in Montreal and online at www.ckut.ca/listen.
