PSW Talks Resume Today

It's back to the bargaining table today in a local labour dispute.  About 80 personal service workers with HAGI community services have been off the job for over a week.  They are striking over the issue of wages, and apparently the difference between their union and the employer is 10 cents an hour.    This morning the two sides will be meeting with the help of a mediator who will try to bridge the gap.    The talks are taking place at the Lakehead Labour Centre.
