Any idea on the number of people there? It looked pretty sparse.

For 900 locked out people and their families, not many showed up. Must have jobs somewhere else or they are at their cottage.

The sparse crowd pretty much sums up the general public's apathy towards the lockout...

What is Local 1005?

Let me draw you a picture first then I'll try to explain:

Now that we all know a few of the different dirty socks you may wear, I will remind us all of something I said nine days ago:

I will also suggest that you (Mayor Bratina) make an appearance at Gage Park Saturday afternoon and address your constituents in a befitting manner as Hamilton's Mayor.

The Mayor of Hamilton did in fact go to Gage Park for Party like it's 1946 and the man deserves huge respect whereas YOU, anonymous trolls, shouldn't get one pusillanimous speck.

What is Local 1005 you ask? I wouldn't give you guys the time of day, you're nothing but dirty socks & sick-rotten rats!

It went to 11 pm, many folks came later in the evening when it was cooler. It certainly was not packed when I was there for the speeches around 12:00. There could have been better communication between USW 1005 and the media about the free food and drinks for anyone who came by.

These types of Unions are pasee. Their agenda is the "fight" their bosses. Doesn't seem like a winning plan.
