CUPE Local 2974 Will Picket Tonight's Essex County Library Board Meeting

The Essex County Library Board meets later tonight and members of CUPE Local 2974 are expected to be in attendance.

Local 2974 spokesperson Lori Wightman says striking members along with general public will be picketing prior to the meeting and then will attend the meeting.

She says the union will not speak at the meeting but residents have requested a chance to speak.

"I know we have had members of the public that say they would like to speak whether or not they'll be able to but I guess that remains to be seen," says Wightman.

Tonight's meeting takes place at the Essex Civic Centre starting at 7pm.

The picket will begin at 5pm.

Today is 124 of the strike.
