Gabriel Enxuga and members of his campaign team attended the Halifax-Dartmouth & District Labour Council‘s annual Labour Day March & Rally in Halifax on Monday September 5th, where Gabriel was an invited speaker at the Rally at Victoria Park prior to the March to the Halifax Commons.
It was great to be on the march, which was led by the Halifax Typographical Union (the striking journalists, editors and photographers from the Chronicle Herald who have been on strike since January 23rd).
Below are some photos and videos of Gabriel and members of dozens of union locals at the 2016 Halifax Labour Day March & Rally.
The Annual Halifax Labour Day March was fabulous. Led by the Halifax Typographical Union, the march included great sounds from members of the Atlantic Federation of Musicians, the unionized musicians in Halifax. Gabriel and his campaign team were proud to join the Halifax-Dartmouth & District Labour Council and affiliate unions for this year’s Labour Day March & Rally:
Gabriel Enxuga has been boycotting the Chronicle Herald since January 23rd, when the newsroom workers at the Herald were forced into a defensive strike over union-busting efforts. Gabriel is committed to not only refuse to advertise in the scab Chronicle Herald during the ongoing strike, but will refuse to be interviewed by any scab Herald reporter or provide content of any type to the Herald during the strike of photographers, editors and journalists.
At the 2016 Halifax Labour Day March & Rally, we were honoured to be led by members of the Halifax Typographical Union (the striking newsroom workers), and even more honoured that Halifax Typographical Union Vice-President (and Local XPress journalist) Frank Campbell spoke from the Labour Day Main Stage about the ongoing struggle.
