Twenty-one part-time Facility Attendants represented by IBEW Local 636 in Lakeshore are on strike as of 6pm Tuesday.
The Part Time Facility Attendants were certified as a bargaining unit in February 2018. Bargaining with Local 636 for the first time collective agreement began in the fall. Last Monday, the Part Time Facility Attendants voted to strike.
“The Town values the contribution that the Facility Attendants make to the delivery of recreational programming and facilities in the Town. The Town will continue to move forward in a thoughtful and respectful manner that contemplates the fiscal realities of operating such facilities”, said Mayor Tom Bain.
During the strike, residents attending Town facilities may experience delays entering or leaving Town premises due to picketing. Town facilities, including the Atlas Tube Centre, will remain open with all services and programs operating as scheduled.
The Town says it will continue to work with its partners, Belle River Minor Hockey, Lakeshore Lightning, Skate Lakeshore, local schools, and user groups to offer quality leisure experiences.
