Talks break down between IFLRA and the Steelworkers
Talks broke down this week between the Interior Forest Labour Relations Association (IFLRA), representing most of British Columbia‘s southern interior lumber producers, and the United Steelworkers Union.
Bargaining had resumed on October 26. The union had hoped the IFLRA would meet and maintain the pattern agreement the union reached for their workers in British Columbia’s northern interior.
The United Steelworkers are now seeking a strike mandate from their members.
