Strike looming for Nishnawbe Aski Police Service in northern Ontario
Police officers who serve 35 remote First Nations in northern Ontario could be in a legal strike position as early as September.
Talks between the Nishnawbe Aski Police Service (NAPS) and the union representing about 150 of its officers broke off this week. That's when the Public Service Alliance of Canada NAPS Local 401 applied to the Ontario Labour Relations Board to start the clock ticking on a strike deadline.
Nearly 95 per cent of officers voted in favour of a strike in July.
