As Canada’s 150th anniversary looms close, everyone is planning how to spend the big day. Whether you are planning on hitting up a patio, having a massive bbq or just getting together with friends it’s very likely that your activities will include a couple of libations. Which is why news that LCBO staff may go on strike days before Canada day is stressing out many Ontarians.
CTV News is reporting that Workers at the Liquor Control Board of Ontario could go on strike just days before the Canda Day long weekend.
According to CTV News, The Ontario Public Service Employees Union requested a “no board” report which has set a strike deadline of 12:01 on June 26, 2017 .
The LCBO says it’s hopeful a negotiated collective agreement will occur but if not it will have to look at contingency plans.
What does a plan b look like? We aren’t 100% sure but if not planned properly, it could see temporary closures until the problem if solved.
Again According to CTV news, the LCBO believes the Unio picked this time strategically to put more pressure on a decision.
Considering Canada Day long weekend is one of the busiest times at the LCBO we think it’s unlikely that consumers won’t be able to shop for booze leading up to the big day.
