PSAC served the employer with the legally required 72-hour notice as of Thursday November 17, 2016, following a membership meeting with the workers at Blue Water Bridge. Members have made it clear that if the employer is not willing to negotiate fairly, that we would take strike action.

Members from various unions will be joining these workers in a show of support given the potential strike or lockout that seems imminent given the employer has offered only one day for bargaining, on Saturday, November 19, 2016.
