Media Advisory: Breton Ability Centre workers to hold information picket on workplace violence

Halifax – An information picket will be held Wednesday, April 17, at the Breton Ability Centre (BAC) in Sydney River. Frontline workers, members of CUPE Local 3513, will bring attention to the alarming increase in workplace violence that they are facing on the job.

The members of CUPE 3513 feel that they are increasingly restricted in the tools needed to ensure workplace safety, and their concerns are not being heard by their employer.

WHAT: Information picket by members of CUPE 3513

TIME: Wednesday, April 17 from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.

LOCATION: Breton Ability Centre, 1300 Kings Road, Sydney River

“CUPE 3513 members are concerned for the safety of all residents and workers at the BAC,” says Kathy MacLeod, CUPE National representative.
