Strike Deadline Set For The Windsor Star

A strike deadline has now been set for the Windsor Star.

The Joint Council of Unions held meetings last week and decided to ask the conciliator to file a no-board report.

Talks had been scheduled for April 9-13, but the union says Postmedia cancelled them.

The deadline is set for 12:01am on May 5th.

Talks are scheduled for May 1-4.

The 180 unionized Windsor Star workers have been without a congtract since December 31, 2016.

Earlier this year, the workers voted 97% in favour of strike action if needed to back contract demands.
