“Crown Holdings, which is headquartered here in Philadelphia, is one of the world’s largest metal-container companies. Despite doubling its profits in 2012, Crown forced the 120 members of USW Local 9176 in Toronto and Ontario out on strike a month ago, demanding a two-tier wage schedule, removal of the cost-of-living allowance, minimal wage increases after years of pay freezes, and no increase in the pension after nine years.
Strikers and their supporters are traveling from Canada to Philadelphia for a rally at Crown HQ in Northeast Philly. Please join our brothers and sisters on the picket line and show your support.”
