water department strike
The union said the strike will not end “until there is an agreement from DWSD management that there will be amnesty for all of the 34 fired workers, and that there will be no retaliation against any other workers or union officers.”
Thirty-four Detroit Water and Sewerage workers who went on strike over pay cuts and the city’s plan to downsize the department over several years have been suspended without pay and face firing.
Workers are back on the picket line a day after a judge ordered them to end a strike protesting job cuts at the Detroit regional water department.
The Detroit Water And Sewerage Department issued a statement Monday morning saying workers who participate in a work stoppage could be subject to suspension and firing.
