ACTRA Supports boycott of Crown Holdings Inc.

ACTRA members:CrownCan-Identify

Striking workers at Crown Holdings have been out on strike for close to two long years. Their fight is not for better conditions but rather to save their jobs and their union. ACTRA is proud to support our strategic alliance partners at the United Steelworkers and join with the Canadian Labour Congress in urging our members to boycott Crown Holdings products. Namely beer sold in cans.

UPDATE (April 9, 2015) further communique from the CLC here: PLEASE READ
