Olymel strike continues

Syndicat des travailleurs d’Olymel Vallée-Jonction reported that 67 per cent of the workers rejected the agreement in principle reached last week.

The strike that began April 28 continues for about 1,000 workers at the hog slaughter plant about 37 km. from Quebec City.

Wages, hours of work and the length of the contract remain in dispute.

The union president said they will return to the negotiation table for talks that will continue to include a conciliator.
