The LCBO workers could be on strike by midnight tonight if no contract is reached.
OPSEU and management are currently at the bargaining table trying to hammer out an agreement.
Lori Cheyne is President of OPSEU local 165 and a part-time worker at the LCBO in Tavistock.
She explains that the treatment of casual workers at the liquor store is a major issue in the current negotiations.
Cheyne says it’s also very difficult for part time LCBO workers to get second jobs.
Ontario Finance Minister Charles Sousa says there isn’t any money for increased wages but Cheyne disagrees.
Cheyne remains hopeful that a good contract can be reached without a strike.
A strike would be the first labour stoppage at the LCBO in 87 years.
