Media Availability: Sid Ryan in Trenton This Morning-Anti-Scab Legislation Now!

TRENTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 21, 2010) - Sid Ryan, OFL President, will be attending the Tyco Thermal picket line in Trenton Ontario, scheduled for 11:30 – 1 pm today to protest the use of scabs and the company's lockout of its workers.

The rally is organized by CEP Local 537 whose workers have been locked out since June.

"Once again, we have another bad employer who would rather use scabs than get down to negotiating with its workers," says Ryan, "we are calling upon the Ontario government to immediately reinstate anti-scab legislation."
