OPSEU Supporting CLC Boycott of Petro Canada

While this isn't a green issue, thought I'd bring this to the attention of readers of this blog.

To: All OPSEU Employees
Re: Boycott of Petro-Canada

The Canadian Labour Congress and the National Union have authorized a boycott of Petro Canada to support workers (CEP 175), locked out of the company's Montréal refinery since Nov. 2007.

They are asking union supporters to avoid buying gas and heating oil from Petro Canada, where alternatives exist. Please also take five minutes to Email Petro Canada President Ron Brenneman to urge him to end the lockout. Edit the letter to tell him you're not buying gas at Petro Canada until he does.

At this time, we are not yet cancelling our Petro Canada staff credit cards, but we ask that you not use them when there is an alternative Esso station available.
Thanks for your cooperation to help get these workers a contract.
