Crown Holdings, a U.S. based multi-national company, (also know as Crown Packaging and previously Crown Cork is one of the major metal container and specialist packaging companies in the world, producing cans for beverage and food containers in 149 countries, including sites here in the UK.
Despite almost doubling its profits in 2012, Crown has launched its latest attack on workers in Toronto, Canada, where members of the United Steelworkers, (our partner union in Workers Uniting) were forced on strike.
Crown is demanding the elimination of a cost of living allowance; the establishment of a two-tier wage system, and the continuation of an already nine-year freeze on pensions.
These demands came soon after Crown gave these union members an achievement award for their “dedication, commitment, teamwork and personal accountability.”
Over the past two years Crown has taken an aggressive attitude to unions including here in the UK where the company reengaged on an agreement reached by Unite members and then declared redundancies.
In Canada USW members have drawn a line in the sand and are leading the “Take-Backs No More” global campaign to stop years of Crown building its profits on the backs of workers.
Unite, the International Association of Machinists, and IndustriALL are building a global union network to stop further Crown’s attacks.
Unite is asking our members to join the “Take-Backs No More Campaign” by sending a letter to Crown Holdings CEO John Conway.
Please support USW members on strike at Crown Holdings in Canada.
