Residents in White Rock can expect a delay is services as workers go on strike.
Until now White Rock workers have been doing rotation job action but they’re moving to a full, city-wide strike.
CUPE 402-01 President Mike Guraliuk (Grrr-lick) says it’s unfortunate residents will be caught in the middle.
“Our employees do the best job that they possible can for the residents but it’s time to get a fair agreement and unfortunately job action is what it’s going to take.”
The City of White Rock says it’s presented a sustainable and fair offer.
White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin says no bargaining sessions are set between the two parties, as job action escalates a third time.
But he says the City will talk to the union soon, and has this message for residents, “Well, just be patient and we’ll get this resolved.”
Centennial Arena, Kent Street Centre, the community centre and the works yard will be closed, while City Hall remains open.
