I can't make this, but you should!
PARTY ON THE PICKET LINE
* * Featuring indie rap legend Jesse Dangerously and other musical guests**
Sat. Sept. 26, 6:30-8:00pm --
Outside the Museum of Civilization, 100 Laurier Street, Gatineau, QC
As you may have heard, the workers at the Museum of Civilization and War Museum are on strike.
Their boss is denying them job security and refusing to protect them against their jobs being contracted out.
Museum CEO Victor Rabinovitch makes 20% more than any other museum head in the region, and in some cases his workers make 40% less than other museum workers in the region. Many of the museums' floor staff have worked on contract for years, with no opportunity for permanence. Out of 55 museum guides, only six have permanent jobs.
Join us for a party on the picket line at the Museum of Civilization on Saturday!
