Toronto – Over 400 workers employed at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG) corporation are set to strike. The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), the union that represents these workers, requested a No Board Report from the Minister of Labour, who has set the legal strike/lock-out date of Friday, July 14, 2017 at 12:01 a.m. No meetings have been scheduled prior to this strike/lock-out deadline.

On May 31, 2017, Anishinabek Police Service (APS) officers who are represented by the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) voted down the employer’s final offer vote conducted by the Ministry of Labour over three days (May 29-31).

“We were surprised that the employer, instead of negotiating with us, went to the members with an offer that had even more cuts then what they had last agreed to at the bargaining table”, states Sharon DeSousa, PSAC Ontario Regional Executive Vice-President.
