Home construction in Peel “grinding to a halt” due to union strikes by frame, trim, drywall and tile workers

The busy summer construction season in Mississauga and the GTA is slowing down due to several ongoing strikes.

The Residential Construction Council of Ontario (RESCON), an association that represents about 250 home and condominium builders in the central Ontario region, is letting its members know about strike action of four unionized trades – frame, trim, drywall and tile.

RESCON president Richard Lyall, whose organization represents builders working in Mississauga and Brampton, said the job action means a number of work sites are “grinding to a halt.” As the strikes go on, they will also start to affect other trades who won’t be able to do their work on the new homes.
