The workers of Lennox & Addington Interval House, Napanee, have been on strike for over a month, yet management has left them out in the cold. 

Interval House’s mission is to provide a safe place for our community’s most vulnerable: abused woman and their children. 

Yet when asked to improve the health and safety of working conditions, the members of Local 414 are ignored. 

Enough is enough. 

It’s time for management to get back to the table and show workers respect. 

Because everyone needs to feel safe at Interval House. Including the people who work there.

The current collective agreement has been expired for more than a year and covers approximately 20 workers at LAIH. The unit voted 100% in favour of strike action. Workers are seeking the same or similar processes and benefits that sister agencies in neighbouring communities have, aiming to address issues of representation, disciplinary actions and job postings.
