The situation has not changed in East Angus, since unionized employees of the company Packaging Hood were locked out last Friday.
Picketing is maintained confirms Sylvain Roy, union representative at Unifor. “We have not had contact with the employer for the next meeting,” he said.
“It’s looking good. ”
Recall that unionized company workers in lockout by their employer in the night from Thursday to Friday last week. 1 to 30 pm, members of Local 847 have been off work, according Unifor.
A few days earlier, members had “overwhelmingly” rejected the final offer from the employer. They had the same time a mandate to exercise pressure tactics that could lead to strike their bargaining committee.
Roy argues that “shares” of union could be intensified in the coming days.
Hood Packaging employs a hundred unionized. Their collective agreement expired on March 31.
