8:30 – Although the Co-op strike in Moose Jaw ended yesterday, Saskatoon Co-op employees remain on strike in protest of the proposed two-tiered wage system, which would see new hires paid less than current employees for the same work. Adding to tensions were reports of vandalism at the Saskatoon Co-op headquarters, picketers blocking the entrances to various locations, and businesses suffering due to their adjacent locations. Saskatoon lawyer Steve Seiferling, a member of the Canadian Association of Counsel to Employers, joins John to discuss the strike.
