TRAIL, B.C.Employees of the Rossland-Trail Golf and Country Club, members of CUPE Local 2087, have voted 100 per cent in favour of striking should their employer fail to improve the latest contract offer, currently on the table.
Frustrated that they have been unable to settle a contract, outstanding since December 2002, eight out of 10 outside workers voted to strike as a last resort, said CUPE national representative Lee Anne Barrett.
Members are ready to sit down with a mediator in order to prevent disruption at the seasons major golf tournament in August.
“We’ve called for mediation in this dispute,” Barrett said. “The idea of disrupting the upcoming tournament is unsettling for everyone.”
