     LCBO union opened strike offices across province

A union representing about 7,000 LCBO employees opened strike offices across the province yesterday as a Friday deadline for labour action is approaching.   Last month, about 95 per cent of unionized LCBO employees voted in favour of walking off the job at midnight on Friday should a new collective agreement not be reached.   At a news conference yesterday, union steward and strike mobilizer Craig Hadley says the LCBO has a responsibility to create and protect good-paying jobs that would support families, and it can afford to do so given the billion-dollar profits from liquor sales.   Hadley says the unionized workers would rather reach a fair contract agreement than walk the picket line, but they are prepared to go on strike, if necessary.
