CUPE sets October 6 strike deadline for Summer Street Industries

NEW GLASGOW, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 4, 2011) - Contract talks aimed at averting a strike by vocational workers employed by Summer Street Industries continue today.

CUPE National Representative Wayne Thomas says, "Notice has been provided to the minister of labour that a strike would commence at 7:00 am on Thursday, October 6 if we fail to reach a deal this week.

"I want to continue to emphasize, however, that our goal is to reach a negotiated settlement and avoid a disruption in service," says Thomas.

Summer Street is a sheltered workshop for adults with intellectual disabilities.
