Quebec liquor board employees to hold second one-day strike on Wednesday
MONTREAL вЂ” Quebec liquor board employees say they will hold a second one-day strike on Wednesday вЂ” a day before the provincial election campaign kicks off.
ItвЂ™s the second of six strike days the workersвЂ™ union has planned to pressure the board amid tough contract negotiations.
Union president Katia Lelievre says WednesdayвЂ™s walkout is designed to pressure the province to force the Crown corporation to settle with its employees, who have been without a contract since March 2017.
Earlier this year, the workers voted 91 per cent in favour of the one-day strikes.
The main sticking points in the negotiations are the issues of weekend work hours and conditions for part-time employees.
Employees at more than 400 Quebec Liquor Corp. outlets across the province held their first one-day strike on July 17.
