    Local 183 Denounces International Union's Response to Complaint of Interference Canada NewsWire

    'By blatantly refusing to suspend their internal US based hearing, LIUNA and its executive are further demonstrating their disregard, not only for the OLRB's jurisdiction to grant the relief requested, but also for the interests of Local 183 and its 30,000 members,' said Keith Cooper, spokesperson for Local 183. 'Through its actions, LIUNA is clearly determined to ignore the due process of the OLRB in an attempt to prevent these proceedings from being truly independent.'
