LIUNA LOCAL 183 RUINS CHRISTMAS FOR MANY OF THEIR MEMBERS BY ORDERING THEM TO PARTICIPATE IN AN ILLEGAL STRIKE
The Building Union of Canada (BUC), Carpenters and Allied Workers, Local 27, United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, and other parties successfully filed interventions to the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB) for the purpose of exposing the fact that LIUNA Local 183 was guilty of making its’ members participate in an illegal strike. The OLRB have ordered LIUNA Local 183 to instruct its members to go back to work immediately.
Unfortunately, during the hearing LIUNA Local 183 attempted to convince the OLRB that this illegal strike was not initiated by LIUNA Local 183 but was instigated by its members.
As of 3:00 p.m. December 13th, LIUNA Local 183 has also been ordered by the OLRB to post the decision at the relevant job sites and disseminate the decision electronically as well.
