On Saturday leaders of the modern Local 1005 hope to recapture some of that spirit with a day-long picnic in Gage Park, stocked heavily with donations from the community.

The event is scheduled to run from noon to 11 p.m. It will feature nine bands, many performing free and many featuring U.S. Steel Canada workers from the Hamilton plant.

Like. My sister is a Stelco employee, as was my father, grandfather, and great-grandfather who was also a part of that strike of '46. Sounds like a fun day.
