TORONTO, April 24, 2013 /CNW/ - Hundreds of delegates attending the Ontario Public Service Employees Union's annual convention will stage an information picket outside the LCBO's head office in downtown Toronto on April 25.
Delegates and their supporters will make the short journey from the Metro Toronto Convention Centre at 255 Front St. W., to the LCBO offices located at 55 Lakeshore Blvd.,E.
Liquor board employees voted 95 per cent in favour of strike action should their contract talks with the Crown-owned retail giant break down. Earlier this week their bargaining team announced a May 17 strike deadline should talks fail.
"The central issue in these negotiations is: 'What kind of Ontario do we want?'" said OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas. "Do we want an Ontario with good, permanent jobs with decent pay and benefits, or will we accept insecure, part-time temporary jobs that don't allow families live decently and give our kids opportunities?"
