Ottawa IWW picket wins $2,500

September 1st, 2008 by admin

From the Industrial Worker

Ottawa-Outaouais IWW members and community supporters won $2,500
owed to member Miguel Yanes Lobaina. Lobaina, who had worked aiwwpicks a dishwasher before being fired, had won a Superior Court of Canada ruling on March 5 ordering Hooley’s restaurant to pay him, but it refused to comply. On August 6, 20 picketers marched in front of its doors, with IWWs holding signs saying, “Pay What’s Owed.” It took less than an hour for the owner to ask for a meeting with the picketers and sign a cheque to pay Lobaina. It didn’t bounce either.
