First Regina, now Saskatoon
Just when library workers in Regina, Saskatchewan come to an agreement with management, workers at the Saskatoon Public Library have voted for a strike mandate. Like their counterparts down the road in Regina, the Saskatoon workers are represented by CUPE and have been without a contract for over two years. The union says that job actions are not imminent but it is likely that the union will use escalating tactics, as seen in recent job actions in Regina and the Okanagan, BC.
