On behalf of USW Local 1005 we would like to thank Federal NDP leader, Jagmeet Singh, for taking the time to come out to the MANA Lockout picket line and talking to everyone personally. After OVER Five years of lockout, it was uplifting to have Jagmeet speak with us. Furthermore, we would like to thank everyone who took the time to come to the line today.
