  • Looming LCBO strike is Premier’s doing

QUEEN’S PARK — MPP Mike Schreiner released the following statement in response to news that negotiations between LCBO workers and the crown agency have broken down, meaning a strike at midnight is highly likely.

“The chaos in the beverage industry is entirely the government’s doing, and now Ontarians are the ones paying for it.

The Premier’s rush to get beer into corner stores without proper planning or consultation has upended the industry and raised workers’ fears about job security in an uncertain future.

Once again, this government’s act-first-think-later approach is making life harder for everyday Ontarians.

Now, as a strike looms large, the government needs to step up and ensure that workers get a fair deal that protects jobs and provides stability in a changing industry.”
