Hay River workers grilling up support

Residents in Hay River will be able to smell the savoury scents of grilled burgers from miles around thanks to the generous donation of a new BBQ for Town of Hay River workers.

the Northern Territories Federation of Labour donated the BBQ to unionized members of Local 6 to support them in their picketing efforts as they work to reach a new collective agreement with their employer.

More than 30 Town workers have been on strike for more than 100 days in a dispute over cost of living increases.

The grill will come in handy as thety offer community barbecues to meet with community members, and will serve as a valuable tool to support other local organizations for years to come.
