Strike looming at LCBO

TORONTO – The LCBO and its workers have just one week left to reach a deal, or face a strike just before the Victoria Day long weekend.

On Friday, the union will be filing a legal claim accusing the employer and Queen’s Park of wage discrimination against female employees.

It alleges the LCBO deliberately classifies regular, year-round customer service work as ‘casual’ — so it can pay the majority of its employees, most of them women, less than permanent workers.

The part-time worker issue is a sticking point in the contract negotiations.
