Caboto Club Workers in Legal Strike Position December 5


Workers at Windsor's Caboto Club will be in a legal strike position next week.

About 100 bartenders, servers, cooks, dishwashers and maintenance staff joined Unifor on March 20, 2018.

Unifor Local 240 officials are optimistic a deal can be reached before the legal strike or lockout date of December 5, 2018 at 12:01am.

Talks began in August and the Caboto Club applied for conciliation in early October.

Unifor Local 240 President Jodi Nesbitt says a deal should recognize the many years of loyalty the workers have given the Caboto Club.

She says several issues need to be resolved.

"Scheduling provisions, cancellations of shifts, in addition to the wages, so the wages are important," she says.

A strike vote takes place Sunday, December 2nd at 8pm at the Unifor hall on Somme Ave.
