Vancouver Public Library Worker Strike: Week 5.

Striking workers have knit more than 80 hats, which are being sold for charity or will be donated to Downtown Eastside residents.

Today marks the start of the fifth week of the first strike ever in Vancouver's library union history. The smallest of the Vancouver unions currently on strike, CUPE 391's 800 members have taken a unique approach to walking the picket lines - one that involves very little walking and more knitting, reading, singing, barbecuing, listening to lectures and practising tai chi.
