Toronto city council is meeting in special session this afternoon to be updated on the lock-out at the Canadian National Exhibition.
Members of IATSE, who handle the staging of events at the Ex, are maintaining picket lines and High Park Councillor Gord Perks, who supported the motion for this afternoon’s meeting, doesn’t like crossing picket lines.
The Ex Board says it wants to modernize the decades old agreement that covers the stage hands. The union says that means the board wants to out-source work.
