PPWC Local 18 has been issued an indefinite closure in Mackenzie. Hundreds are without jobs and these curtailments will affect more than just mill workers. In response to this, the MackenzieMatters Rally will take place on Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 12 PM – 4 PM.
Rally attendees will gather by the forestry building to march down the Boulevard starting at 12 PM (noon), down to the third set of lights at Stuart Drive, turn down Stuart, then Skeena until we reach the Mackenzie Rec Center where the remainder of the event will take place. Speeches to start at 1:30 PM.
Many of the local unions and business owners have come together to have our voices heard. Please invite as many community and non-community members as possible to this event.
There will be speakers, politicians, media and as much representation as we can summon. We are hoping for as much support as possible for Local 18 Mackenzie.
