Countdown Clock Ticking on Library Labour Disruption

Labour ministry issues no board report; strike or lockout possible in 17 days.

Word from the Toronto Public Library this afternoon: Ontario’s Ministry of Labour has granted a “no board” report, indicating that hopes for a negotiated settlement between library workers and the City of Toronto are fading. This means that both sides will be in a legal strike/lockout position as of Sunday, March 18. TPL’s press release reiterates that their bargaining unit, CUPE 4948 is committed to continuing negotiations; meetings are scheduled for the coming weeks and the bargaining process is right now expected to continue.

More to come.

    If the librarians are dumb enough to strike, that will be the end of them.
