A labour dispute in Durham Region could take a turn for the worse.

As of Friday, June 13th the union is in a legal strike position.

Inside workers (including child care workers) belonging to CUPE Local 1764, say they will give 48 hours notice before taking strike action.

**Read the statement released by region staff about about the ongoing negotiations here.**

As of Friday morning, 1,600 regional employees remain on the job, however Durham officials say picket lines in some locations could be possible if a strike were to take place.

The union not only represents daycare workers, but also paramedics and health inspectors.

    You guys have a very good radio station but at 7:40 I have to change the channel to 680 because I CANNOT stand listening to a guy that seems to be doing everyone a "Favour" with his solicitation of customers for his store. Clearly he is spending $ and perhaps outfitting your host's, but his abnoxious [lengthly] adds result in me changing the channel. I understand the dynamics of business and the importance of advertising....but come on. Get rid of HIS air-time space. Just listen to guy and think about what your listeners are hearing.
