TORONTO, May 16, 2013 /CNW/ - LCBO today announced that a tentative
agreement has been reached with its 6,700 unionized employees, averting
the possibility of a strike at LCBO stores and warehouses.
Terms of the new collective bargaining agreement were not disclosed
pending ratification by members of the Liquor Board Employees Division
of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU).
The agreement must also be approved by members of the LCBO Board of
Directors and by the Government of Ontario through an Order-in-Council.
"LCBO thanks the public for its patience during negotiations," said LCBO
President & CEO Bob Peter. "We believe this agreement is fair to
employees, is in the best interest of taxpayers and will enable LCBO to
continue to provide responsible, quality service to customers and
licensees across the province."
