Update: Teamsters Call On Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan To Stop Worker Abuse

12/10/2013 | 05:01am EDT

Teamsters, Workers Rally Outside Teachers' Offices to Hold Investor Accountable

(WASHINGTON) - Teamsters Canada President Robert Bouvier, Teamster leaders from Canada and the U.S., as well as EXAL Corporation workers from Ohio, will hold a rally outside the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan (Teachers') offices on Yonge Street in Toronto today, Tues., Dec. 10, at 8:30 a.m.

The demonstrators will publicly call on Teachers' to stop worker and human rights abuses at EXAL Corp., an aluminum bottle manufacturer in Youngstown, Ohio. EXAL is owned and actively managed by the Canadian pension plan.

"Teachers' proclaims a commitment to socially responsible investing while actively promoting and financing a vicious campaign of fear and intimidation against workers in the United States at EXAL," said Robert Bouvier, President of Teamsters Canada. "Their campaign not only violates U.S. labor law, but the internationally accepted standards for labor and human rights as established by the ILO and OECD."

The National Labor Relations Board, the federal agency responsible for enforcing labor law in the U.S., recently found that EXAL unlawfully harassed, interrogated, threatened and spied on workers who support joining the Teamsters. Teachers' has refused repeated calls by the Teamsters, the Ontario Teachers' Federation and the Canadian Labour Congress to take action to protect EXAL workers.

WHO: Robert Bouvier, President, Teamsters Canada
Randy Doner, President, Teamsters Joint Council 52, Canada
Ralph "Sam" Cook, Secretary-Treasurer, Teamsters Local 377, U.S.A.
EXAL Corporation workers from Youngstown, Ohio, U.S.A.

WHAT: Rally for Justice for EXAL Workers

WHEN: Tues., Dec. 10, 2013, 8:30 a.m.

WHERE: Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan (Teachers') offices
5650 Yonge Street, Toronto, Ontario M2M 4H5
