Information pickets are being held across the country today, as VIA Rail Canada employees attempt to send a strong message to their employer and the federal government.
They’ll be gathering at VIA Rail train stations.
Unifor says they are marching in protest of the recent announcement that VIA is cutting jobs and contracting out to foreign companies.
