After an overwhelming vote in favour of a strike mandate and also receiving a no-board report from the Ministry of Labour, the 17-day countdown is on.

 

 

That means the approximately 10,000 liquor store employees will be in a legal position to commence job action July 5.

”We chose this date because we did not want to impact the first long weekend of the summer,” according to Colleen MacLeod, chair of the union bargaining team.

”Let’s make this clear, LCBO employees also do not want a dry Ontario for the summer.”

If there’s no tentative agreement reached in he eight bargaining dates over the next couple of weeks, there will be a strike.

However, MacLeod says a deal is the goal.

One key obstacle is the government’s expansion of alcohol sales.

”I firmly believe that the government is the one who is directing our employer (LCBO) on how to bargain,” MacLeod points out.
