LCBO Strike Averted

Most LCBO stores will be closed on holiday Monday


THUNDER BAY – The LCBO and OPSEU workers have reached an agreement that has ended a potential walkout at liquor stores across Ontario. 

A tentative agreement has been reached with the LCBO’s 6,700 unionized employees. This has averted the possibility of a strike at LCBO stores and warehouses.

LCBO Open for Business

Terms of the new collective bargaining agreement were not disclosed pending ratification by members of the Liquor Board Employees Division of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU).

The agreement must also be approved by members of the Board of Directors and by the Government of Ontario through an Order-in-Council.

“LCBO thanks the public for its patience during negotiations,” said President & CEO Bob Peter. “We believe this agreement is fair to employees, is in the best interest of taxpayers and will enable LCBO to continue to provide responsible, quality service to customers and licensees across the province.”
