OPSEU conducts advertising campaign
The Ontario Public Service Employees Union has begun a new advertising campaign focusing on part-time workers at LCBO stores in the province. The campaign is tied to the upcoming May 17 strike deadline the union has set for workers at the liquor retailer. The radio ads will run in English and French until the deadline. "Employers these days are driving big changes in the workplace that are making it harder and harder for people to make a living," said union president Warren Thomas. "More and more jobs are being classified as part-time or temporary as employers with increasingly high profits continue to squeeze the people who make those profits possible. "That's exactly what's happening at the LCBO, and the goal of our ad campaign is to inform the public that what we are bargaining for is what all working people want, the chance to live decently and give our kids what they need."
