Thunder Bay municipal workers have voted to strike if necessary, to fight concession demands by their employer, including benefit cuts and other take-aways. Negotiators for CUPE 87, representing 650 inside and outside workers in this Northwestern Ontario community, will enter mediated talks with city management on July 18th.

Any agreement that can be settled during a strike can be settled without one if there is good will on both sides of the table,” said Judith Mongrain, CUPE 87 president. “The city needs to take down the brick wall they have erected and come to a fair and equitable collective agreement with its employees.”
