Now that BBQ season's over...

If the entirety of your labour-dispute attention span was invested in the burgeoning general strike in BC, you may not be aware of the pickets outside Lakeside Packers in Brooks, Alberta. Fifteen hundred meatpackers are demanding a fair contract after going a year sans any collective agreement.

CBC's story omits any recent context, but gets points for bringing up the fact that a majority of the labourers are immigrants, mostly African--a detail that the National Post glossed over, for instance. Both outlets neglect to mention the fact that Lakeside Packers processes one-third of Canadian beef.
