After stocking up this weekend, we find out that there will not be a strike at the LCBO.
The Ontario Public Service Employees Union and Liquor Control Board of Ontario reached a tentative contract agreement just before last night’s strike deadline.
LCBO employees will now vote on the new deal, but in the interim, there will be no labour disruption at liquor stores.
