Mediation for Stong's Markets Ltd.

On November 26 Local 247 issued strike notice for the 30 members employed at Stong's Markets Ltd. We have also filed bargaining in bad faith charges against the Employer with the Labour Relations Board. The Company has responded by applying for Mediation and we will now be meeting with them on December 7th and 9th. With the Mediation process now in place the any strike action is on hold until we either reach an agreement or the Mediator "checks out" of the process.

It is our intention to bargain a fair Collective Agreement and avoid strike action if at all possible.
