Regina Public Library workers may strike
Just when you thought that labor peace had come to Canadian libraries, workers at the Regina Public Library have voted for a strike mandate. The workers are represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) and passed the vote with a 82% majority. The issues at stake are longer work hours on Sundays with less pay and less benefits for new and part-time employees.
