Union plans to hold strike vote

Tuesday, January 19, 1999
 

TORONTO -- The union representing Ontario's public servants is asking its members for a mandate to call a strike.

"Our objective is to get a collective agreement," Leah Casselman, president of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union, told a Queen's Park news conference yesterday. "We now see, as a result of what the employer has tabled, that it's going to take a strong strike vote to make sure we get a collective agreement our members will accept."

Ms. Casselman said she thinks an agreement can be reached without a strike. Management Board Chairman Chris Hodgson, responsible for the government's side of the negotiations, also said he thinks a repetition of the strike three years ago can be avoided. "There's been good progress in the talks so far," he said in a telephone interview. "I'm hopeful we can reach an agreement."

OPSEU's 48,000 members will likely hold a strike vote late next month. Staff
