ferry-kootenay-osprey-1203467

We should know more next week whether local ferry's will be affected by job action.

Earlier in the summer, Unionized workers operating the Kootenay Lake, Harrop, and Glade ferries voted unanimously to take job action to pressure their employer for a new contract.

The current contract  expired in March.

A hearing is planned for the middle of next week for the BC Labour Relations Board to decide on essential services in the event of a strike.
