Bike messengers and car couriers protested outside Courrier Rapide on March 26th with a clear message to their employer: Une convention collective, ça presse!

CUPW is now trying some more creative means to force Courrier Rapide to negotiate, including this demonstration outside their office. There’s more to come if they won’t budge!
