Workers serve strike notice at plant on reserve

The union representing 42 workers at Progressive Rubber Industries has served 72 hours strike notice.

The Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union said it has a 97-per-cent strike mandate, but noted that both sides are looking for a solution.

"We are close to an agreement but not close enough," said CEP national representative Bob Hughf in a press release.

"We still need to resolve wages, length of the agreement, RRSPs and benefits."

Progress Rubber Industries is on Chilcotin Road on the reserve.
