TORONTO - A source with the Ontario government says the Progressive Conservatives are prepared to recall the legislature to table back-to-work legislation to end a potential strike by power workers that could lead to outages.
On Wednesday, members of Ontario s Power Worker s union rejected a contract offer from Ontario Power Generation, putting them in a legal strike position as of Dec. 26.
The union, which has been without a deal since March 31, says in a statement that OPG s final offer remained unchanged from a previous position and was rejected.
Ontario Power Generation expressed disappointment that its offer was rejected and says it is activating contingency plans in the event of a labour disruption.
