Toronto – Over 400 workers represented by the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), and employed at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG) corporation have been locked-out as of July 14, 2017. Picket lines have been set up at the site, with workers standing strong in the face of this multi-billion-dollar crown corporation.

PSAC sent the Premier a letter on June 28, 2017, advising of the potential labour dispute, as well as the Minister of Finance and Minister of Labour. A response was never received.

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.

Sault Ste Marie – Workers at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming corporation (OLG) headquarters in Sault Ste Marie are attempting to achieve a fair first collective agreement.

The Local joined the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) last year, and negotiations are reaching a critical point. PSAC filed for conciliation on May 3rd and we are currently waiting the appointment of a conciliation officer to assist negotiations going forward.

To continue to support negotiations workers will be holding a rally at city hall.
