12-week strike over at Ottawa museums Add to ...

Workers from the Canadian Museum of Civilization and Canadian War Museum were back on the job yesterday after voting Tuesday to accept a four-year deal. The vote ended a 12-week strike by employees represented by the Public Service Alliance of Canada.

According to a PSAC release, the new deal commits the museums to use attrition to minimize job losses, restricts contracting out, creates seven new permanent part-time positions and aligns parental and maternity leaves with Quebec Parental Insurance legislation. Both institutions - the civilization museum is in Gatineau, Que., the war museum in Ottawa - remained open throughout the strike.
