2013 Bargaining Strike Vote News Alert 3

LBED Bargaining Bulletin, News Alert 3

Your invitation to participate in a Tele-Town Hall

The LCBO earns a profit of $200,000 per unionized employee. It can afford better than a four-year wage freeze, concessions, and a refusal to meet the needs of our permanent, casual, fixed term, PPTs and seasonal workers.

That's why your bargaining team has decided to call a strike vote for April 8-9. We have a lot of important information to share with you regarding the status of our negotiations — and why it's critical that you and your co-workers vote Yes on the strike vote.

We're holding two province-wide meetings over the phone lines to speak directly with you, answer your questions, and to give everyone the opportunity to hear what other LBED members have to say. The meetings — tele-town halls — are a lot like phone-in radio shows. Each will last one hour.

When: Choose either 7 p.m., Wednesday, April 3

   OR 10 a.m., Thursday, April 4

How:  If your phone number is in our data base you will get a phone call a few minutes before the start time. All you have to do is stay on the line.

If you do not get a call: Dial 1-888-772-5578 at any time during the meeting. You may choose to only listen or you may participate in the discussion by following the simple directions.

We hope to hear from you on April 3 or 4. You will receive a phone call in a few days reminding you to call-in..

Your employer needs to hear that you support your bargaining team's efforts to negotiate a fair contract. The LCBO needs to know that you are standing together for good jobs and a decent living.

Join us on April 3 or 4!
