There is a strong possibility of a strike at the LCBO. Staff with the Liquor Control Board of Ontario have voted 93 per
cent in favour of a strike as their union continues to bargain for a
new collective agreement.
Ontario Public Service Employees Union bargaining-team chief
Denise Davis says her team will now return to negotiations with a
strong mandate from the workers.
The union represents 75-hundred L-C-B-O staff whose last contract
expired on March 31st.
A key issue in the talks is the union’s opposition to a
provincial move to sell beer, wine and cider in grocery stores,
calling it “creeping privatization.”
