BCGEU strike shuts down Sidney liquor store
A one day strike by the B.C. Government and Service Employees' Union shut down the government liquor store in Sidney Sept. 5. According to the union, the one-day work stoppage is being observed by approximately 25,000 BCGEU members province-wide at more than 700 government worksites across B.C.
Essential service levels were guaranteed during the strike, which is being observed by BCGEU workers as a response to the group lacking a contract with the government since last March.
