A group of child care workers in St. John’s, Nfld., members of CUPE 3017, went on strike Jan.12 at 12 a.m. The main outstanding issue is wage parity. Wages for the 25 employees of the Daybreak Parent Child Centre are 7.7 per cent lower than for all other provincial government employees. Staff members are also restricted to lower salary bands because the province’s Treasury Board refuses to rate them according to the government job evaluation system.
