LGA Members Reach Tentative Agreement, Avert Strike
Aug 07, 2015Yesterday evening, MGEU members from the Manitoba Liquor and Gaming Authority (LGA), Locals 425 and 426, avoided possible strike action scheduled for next week by reaching a tentative agreement through conciliation.
Back in June, the LGA Bargaining Committee received a strike mandate from the membership, and negotiations were getting to the point where strike action was looking like a strong possibility. But the two sides spent many hours in talks over the past couple weeks, and with the assistance of a conciliation officer, they were successful in reaching a tentative agreement.
In the coming days, the Committee will be planning ratification meetings for members to vote on the agreement. Further information on the vote will be sent to members of the two Locals when the details are finalized.
