YMCA childcare workers in Ottawa vote to go on strike

Childcare workers fighting for better wages at two YMCA locations in Orleans and one downtown are closer to going on strike after holding a vote Tuesday night.

Among the 33 workers at the three locations, 22 employees voted in favour of a strike and one opposed. The affected centres are located at 180 Argyle Ave., 265 Centrum Blvd., and 2080 Portobello Blvd.

Abigail Kidd, union education officer at CUPE 2204, the local that represents YMCA childcare workers, said employees also want a better pension and benefits.
