Shelter workers at the Lennox and Addington Interval House (LAIH) made the difficult decision to initiate a strike on Friday, October 29, 2021.
The previous collective agreement expired more than one year ago and covers approximately 20 workers at LAIH. Workers are seeking the same or similar language and benefits that sister agencies in neighbouring communities have, aiming to address issues of representation, disciplinary actions and job postings.
Lennox and Addington Interval House is a shelter that serves women and children leaving domestic violence.
