Default Has anyone heard anything about a strike?

I was visiting my house today and a guy that was in my neighbourhood told me that the drywallers are going on strike at the end of the month and the electricians middle of next month. He said it would cause delays. Has anyone heard anything about that?

The whole 183 might be going on strike, one for all, all for one. For now it's just a rumour but it's a possibility. Contracts are expiring soon.

Does this strike affect everyone,everywhere or just certain areas? Our home is being built in Oshawa, for an August closing. Will we be affected if this strike does happen?

Thanks all

Default Union Strike

The strike mandate was supposed to be May 1/10....this is why everyone is getting late notices...Sundial already knew of this. Even though the Sundial crews aren't union it would still affect the houses going up. Another note, lots of the crews have left here because of the pay and moved on down the road where they get almost a dollar more!

Default Letter in waiting

We got a canada post notice yesterday evening for pick up today. I bet it's a delay notice! Funny, the mail to inform me they started construction on my house also came yesterday. I bet we'll see.

Yup its true the carpenters/drywall union voted last week 97% in favor of a strike. There waiting for our union (drywall finishers) to vote on May18. Looks like were going to strike also.The strike could start as soon as May19th.
