The B-C Government and Service Employees Union has announced the next round of rotating strikes in its contract dispute with LifeLabs.
Labs in Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Richmond, Surrey, and Victoria will be behind picket lines Saturday through next Monday.
The union says the company is offering a wage hike 3.9 per-cent over three years, but says that's well below what B-C Biomedical Labs pays, and with concession demands it works out to almost zero.
Last week LifeLabs announced it wants to buy B-C Biomedical Labs.
