IGA Members vote 98% for Strike

IGA members voted 98% in favour of strike action if necessary at meetings held on March 5th. An overwhelming majority of the people were clearly unhappy  with the Company's last position. "I've notified the Company on the results of the vote and am awaiting a call back so we can determine what direction we need to pursue," commented Dan Goodman. "I'm not surprised by the vote..people are frustrated by the time it's taken us to get to this point but they aren't going to settle for less that what they think is fair." Most of the outstanding issues are monetary with the Company seeking changes to some of the benefit entitlements as well as additional protected positions.
