Victoria library workers to rally & resume job action

    VICTORIA, Sept. 19 /CNW/ - CUPE 410, representing Greater Victoria Public
Library workers, will hold a march and rally on September 21 in support of a
fair collective agreement that includes pay equity.
    The union put job action on hold last week in the hopes that library
management would return to negotiations. However, due to the employer's
refusal to bargain, CUPE 410 will resume job action, and for the first time
will pull all 250 of its members off the job for the full day, affecting all
nine branches of the library.
