LCBO union opened strike offices across province

May 14, 2013 | G-BLOG | 0 comments

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.
