1,300 Radio-Canada workers poised to strike

3/21/2002

Montreal - About 13-hundred Radio-Canada employees in Quebec and New Brunswick are considering a one-day strike.

Negotiations have broken down with the broadcaster. The employees are in Quebec and in Moncton.

The union won't say if a 24-hour strike would begin at midnight Thursday and doubts Radio-Canada will lock out employees.

Union members voted 69 per cent against the last contract offer from the French-language network of the CBC.

Job security is a key issue to be resolved.

If they strike or are locked out, newscasts could be affected.
