In June a "riot" among picketers on company premises led to the firings of 38 CASAW members, including Roger Warren.
Picketing continued throughout the summer and the day before the fatal blast, CASAW legal counsel Gina Fiorillo filed an unfair labour practice complaint with the Canadian Labour Relations Board stating, in part: "While the company has a legal right to utilize scabs, it knowingly provoked a violent and confrontational labour dispute when it chose to continue operations at the mine by hiring scabs in an effort to break the Union.
Wiretappings, undercover agents, paid informers, extensive interrogations, search warrants on private homes were all part of the extensive search directed almost exclusively at a portion of the CASAW membership.
When a press conference at the CASAW union hall was interrupted with the news of Warren's confession thirteen months after the police investigation began, one of the striker's wives, June Roberts, was watching the news on TV with her friend.
