Employees at SAQ liquor stores and offices will walk out for another day on Friday (today) and hold a general assembly the same day to set their strategy for the future. Unionized employees gave their union a mandate or six days of strike to be used when deemed appropriate, as they did in July and August. The SAQ Shop and Office Employees Union has 5,500 members and is attached to the Federation of Public Service Employees, affiliated to the CSN. The main issue at play in this strike action is weekend work, which is the busiest time of the week. The SAQ wants to adjust schedules to accommodate this reality, which is particularly annoying to regular employees. During the last strike days, the SAQ kept some branches open, operated by executives, and which were identified on the website. Published in the Friday, September 28 edition of The Record.
