LCBO and OPSEU settle potential strike
..so what else is new? One wine wag said that it was all scripted and staged anyway...
A lot has been made about that record haul and how the strike threat was good for business, but if you think about a lot of people are probably be like me: I picked up a couple big bottles of liquor on Tuesday and now I probably won't be back to the LCBO for a month or so. Now that everyone's stocked up, business will probably be slower than average for a few weeks at least. In the end it might end up almost even, with a little blip to account for the "it was in my fridge so I drank it" syndrome.
ha! so true about that little "blip". W hat with all that extra booze around, it might lead to people drinking more than they would normally, which is contrary to the lcbo not supposed to be promoting drinking.
Well I'm stocked up on wine for sure even though I'm in beer-drinking mode now. Still I'm glad they're not on strike because I prefer to get my beer from the lcbo.
$60 million in one day though, that's pretty awe-inspiring -- an economic stimulus package in and of itself!
That's a nice take-in for one day. I'm glad they settled, hubby didn't buy any extra and I went into panic mode thinking I wouldn't have my glass of wine with dinner. Whew.
