SONG vote

Employees at Ming Pao, one of Toronto's largest Chinese-language newspapers, voted to unionize yesterday under the CEP Local 87M media union, says a CNW press release.

The successful vote culminated a three-week open campaign for the union, generated by the desire for improved wages, benefits, working conditions and, in a word, respect, says union prez Brad Honywill.

"Now the employees can begin the process of electing a bargaining committee, developing contract proposals and meeting management to forge a first contract."

Two other Chinese papers, Sing Tao Daily and World Journal, are already organized.
