December 2, 2014

This holiday season, when you raise a bottle, instead of a can, you are supporting good jobs for workers and their families.

Take a stand against union-busting by changing your Facebook profile picture to promote the USW beer can boycott this holiday season. Crown Holdings, the U.S.-based aluminum can giant, has forced its 120 Toronto workers out on strike since September 2013 by demanding massive concessions. Since then, Crown has refused to negotiate a fair settlement, closed its Montréal plant and bused in scabs to break the union in Toronto.

But you can help!

1) Save this campaign image to your device, and then upload it as your profile picture on Facebook and Twitter to help spread the word.

2) Join the day of action on Dec. 13 with a mass leafleting at local beer stores.

3) Post an update your own Facebook page to share how your union local or your family is supporting the boycott.
