OPSEU, the union representing LCBO workers is counting down to a strike and in the run-up to the deadline, the union has launched liqileaks.ca, a campaign aimed at exposing “the reality of their working conditions,” through first-hand accounts.

In a press release, OPSEU President, Warren (Smokey) Thomas says the employer “has brought this on itself.”

“The way that senior management has acted, and the pressure from the provincial government to drive up profits, no matter the cost to workers, has brought us to the brink of a strike,” said Thomas.“No worker should be treated the way these folks are being treated right now – especially not at a profitable Crown corporation that can afford to do better.”

“The LCBO should be setting an example for Ontario employers, not joining a race to the bottom with Walmart.”

The campaign which kicked off today across the province includes print, billboard, digital, radio, and television ads aimed at building public support for LCBO workers.

If the bargaining table fails to reach an agreement, LCBO stores could be shuttered as of June 26.
