NOSM staff on strike

Administration staff at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine are on strike.  Pickets are set up at all entrances at Lakehead University.  Dean Dr. Roger Strasser says they want to reach a solution with the OPSEU union.  Meanwhile, Union Chair Tyler England says they just couldn't reach an agreement after 90 hours of bargaining.  Outstanding issues include workloads, benefits and sick leaves.
