Fruit Industry Members Give 99% Strike Mandate

Local 247 members employed by the Okanagan Tree Fruit Cooperative have voted 99% in favor of strike action at meetings held across the province this past week. The Employer recently tabled a collective agreement filled with concessions and declined to discuss any further negotiation on it. On July 27th we will be meeting with the Company with the assistance of Mediator Mark Atkinson. We will update members on the discussions as they take place.
