    Default Sandoz Workers Vote to Strike

    Laval, May 16, 2016 — Sandoz workers in Boucherville overwhelmingly rejected the employer’s offer and 91% voted in favour of a strike mandate at Saturday’s union meeting.

    The work stoppage will take place when deemed appropriate.

    At issue are wages and failure to respect seniority when assigning shifts and providing worker training. The collective agreement expired on December 31, 2015.

    The members of Teamsters Local Union 1999 working at the drug manufacturer are mainly unhappy about the many extra duties imposed on them due to increasingly complex and stringent standards issued by Canadian and U.S. regulators.

    The 24-hour Factory Strike at Sandoz is Now a Lockout
    BOUCHERVILLE, QC, June 8, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - The 24-hour strike at the Sandoz pharmaceutical factory is now a lockout.

    The employer turned away workers who showed up this morning for a 7-hour shift.

    This irresponsible pressure tactic could eventually disrupt the supply of medications to hospitals.

    "A 24-hour strike is one thing, an indefinite lockout is another," said Jean-François Pelletier, a Business Agent with Teamsters Canada Local Union 1999. "We went on strike for only 24 hours precisely to avoid creating a drug shortage."

    The Teamsters Union is meeting with management this afternoon in the hopes of resolving the labour dispute.
