Toussaint Gets Company

Chuck Bennett, who is keeping his eye on the TWU election, has some good new for union president Roger Toussaint. There is another candidate in the race to beat him: Ainsley Stewart

“He plans to hammer Toussaint on calling off the strike after 60 hours and, of course, the 1.5% of gross wage health insurance premiums that was in the rejected contract.”

Also running against Toussaint is Barry Roberts who, according to this hand-written letter, may have supported the strike at one point.
