Striking public service workers are growing more frustrated.
In an update Wednesday outside Parliament Hill, National president Chris Aylward said their bargaining team learned Tuesday night that government won’t move from their position on wages.
He’s calling on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to settle the dispute.
“He can either get involved personally, and help settle this dispute, or he can turn his back on the workers who are striking, predominantly women who are making 45-60-thousand dollars a year,” said Aylward.
He added that if Trudeau turns his back, he’ll turn his back on every single worker in the country.
Earlier today, Treasury Board president Mona Fortier told reporters that they’re still at the table, but the offers from the union are unreasonable.
It’s the eighth day of the strike, as over 155,000 public service workers seek better pay and to work from home more often.
