Strike/lockout date set for LifeLabs Local 5119

Employees at Lifelabs will be in a legal strike position as of 12.01 on March 14.

The Minister of Labour has granted a “no board” report to negotiators for OPSEU/SEFPO Local 5119 couriers and mailroom clerks with LifeLabs, triggering a 17-day countdown to a legal lockout or strike position.

The no-board comes after talks between the employer and the union broke down last week. Local 5119 members have been in negotiations to secure a first-contract since May 31, 2021.

The two parties can continue trying to reach a deal before the deadline. Please stay tuned for updates in the coming days.
