The Canadian Union of Postal Workers may not be the only union on strike in the Kamloops area this week.
Some 3,000 members of the United Steelworkers who work in the forestry industry are in a legal position to strike today.
President Marty Gibbons is speaking to members about what to do and when. But he says it could happen anytime.
“I’m not actually saying that there won’t be any job action,” he said. “You know the one thing about rotating strikes is they are so much more enjoyable for an employer when they are surprised.”
“At this point in time, we are in a legal strike position. Our membership is pretty angry and I can’t guarantee there is not going to be a strike.”
Talks with the employer broke off, and their last contract expired on July 1st.
