LCBO Strike Averted As Tentative Deal Reached With Workers

Posted: Updated:

TORONTO -- The Liquor Control Board of Ontario has reached a tentative agreement with its workers, just hours ahead of a midnight strike deadline.

LCBO spokeswoman Heather McGregor says the tentative deal is fair to both taxpayers and the 67-hundred employees affected.

Details of the agreement won't be released until the board of directors and the workers vote whether to accept the deal.

The union had complained during talks that too many LCBO employees are restricted to part-time work, with some getting only two-hours a day.
