United Steelworkers (USW) members demonstrated last week at the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) offices to convince Canada’s Olympic organizers to help get mining giant Rio Tinto “Off the Podium.”
USW activists delivered the message in person to COC officials on June 20 and distributed leaflets to passersby at Toronto’s busy Yonge and St. Clair intersection.
