Tempers flare as Canadian CU strike delays service
NELSON, B.C. (2/19/10)--Long service delays at a Canadian credit union that reduced its hours after about 50 staffers went on strike produced hot tempers and a broken glass door Wednesday. Angry about the long delay in getting his check cashed, an unidentified man kicked and smashed the glass in the front door at Nelson, B.C.-based branch of Nelson and District Credit Union (The Canadian Press Feb. 17). Another man yelled at staff placing tape to seal off the broken door until it could be repaired. The striking workers, represented by United Steelworkers Union, went on strike at the Nelson, Rossland and Crawford Bay branches. CEO Doug Stoddart told the publication that the credit union is trying to keep the branches open with management staff. The striking workers have been without a contract since May 2008. Stoddart said another offer is on the table and the credit union hopes to resolve the situation "in due course."
