Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court has sided with the employer of Labatt Breweries workers engaged in a wildcat strike for the last two weeks.
Justice Donald Burrage ordered that the workers must stop obstructing people entering and exiting Labatt’s facility on Leslie Street in St. John’s. He ruled that the workers must also take down their tents and remove other objects from the entranceway.
Burrage also ruled that the injunction will not be impacted by a change in the legality of the strike.
Members of Local 7004 of the Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Public and Private Employees have been without a contract since March 31. They will be in the position to hold a strike vote Tuesday as of midnight.
