East Coast Radio Strike Ends: Stalemate for 7 Continues


The bizarre nearly-two-year strike by seven New Brunswick broadcasters has ended, but not because the Canadian Media Guild has been successful.  When the Saint John-based Maritime Broadcasting System was notified that the strike was being called off, they opted to lock out the seven employees, who went on strike in protest against their difficult working conditions in June of 2012. According to the employer, the seven union members will not be allowed back to work without a collective working agreement.

Sounds like an almost impossible situation.
