The 24-hour Factory Strike at Sandoz is Now a Lockout

The 24-hour factory strike at the Sandoz pharmaceutical factory is now a lockout. The employer turned away workers who showed up this morning for a 7-hour shift. This irresponsible pressure tactic could eventually disrupt the supply of medications to hospitals.

Sandoz Workers Vote to Strike

Sandoz workers in Boucherville overwhelmingly rejected the employer’s offer and 91% voted in favour of a strike mandate at Saturday’s union meeting. The work stoppage will take place when deemed appropriate. At issue are wages and failure to respect seniority when assigning shifts.
