It’s good news but for all.
Some employees who are members of the International Union of Elevator Constructors are back on the job today on orders from the Ontario Labour Relations Board.
They had been on-strike since May 1st.
A section of Ontario’s Labour Relations Act requires any strikes affecting the construction of new residential buildings and repairs to existing buildings to have a cap of six weeks.
But the order applies to residential mechanics only; nursing homes and hospitals are not affected.
Failure to comply with the back to work order would constitute an illegal strike and can result in individual fines of up to 2-thousand dollars or a fine to the union of up to 25-thousand.
