Workers set to shutdown region’s libraries

All-out strike could come soon, union official says

After a week-long pause in their job action campaign, Greater Victoria Regional Library workers plan to walk off the job all day today (Sept. 21), while their strike committee meets to decide the next step.

The strike will shut down all eight library branches.

The workers have staged two three-hour pickets in the last two weeks. After their last action last Thursday, the union said it would give the library seven days to come to the table with a new offer.
