Toronto Hydro workers vote to strike

Employees to hold information pickets

Members of the Society of Energy Professionals’ Toronto Hydro Local voted 98 per cent in favour of a strike.

The workers will stage an information picket at three locations on April 22 to educate the public on the issues currently in dispute at the bargaining table.

According to the union, management is seeking to eliminate retirement benefits and slash parental and family leave for new hires.

The Society of Energy Professionals represents all non-management engineers at Toronto Hydro.

Members build and maintain key infrastructure like hydro vaults, polls and wires that facilitate power.
