In Long Harbour, Newfoundland, around 2,000 workers walked off the job on Thursday July 12, and then proceeded to block entrances into the site.
Workers are angry with levels of pay. Workers on the site are earning on average, $15 an hour less than comparable workers in other areas of Canada.
Furthermore, workers are upset at their own union for not addressing their concerns. Predictably, the union are not supporting the action.
As Vale returns to court to prosecute strikers and union president Gus Doyle compares wild cat strike workers with kids... workers say they are willing to risk losing their jobs because they feel union leaders are no longer representing their interests.
