Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre workers 1 step closer to strike

Workers at the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre are one step closer to striking after they joined colleagues across Ontario in voting against a tentative agreement with the provincial government.

About a dozen correctional workers — members of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union — held an information picket line Thursday morning and delayed people entering the facility by pacing back and forth along the gate outside the jail.

The officers have been seeking a new contract as part of province-wide negotiations with the Kathleen Wynne government.
