No end in sight for Canadian library strike

From Canada.com:

The strike of some 180 unionized workers at the Regina Public Library is entering its third day today and there are no signs a settlement is near . . .

While conceding the strike is causing considerable inconvenience for people who use the library for recreational and research purposes, Library Director Sandy Cameron said there are no plans for library management to reopen the library without the services of the striking workers. \"We can\'t run the library without the staff,\'\' Cameron said. \"We wouldn\'t try to keep it open, this (the strike) is part of the negotiating process. . .\"

The predominately female workforce at the library believes it is underpaid, based on gender-based discrimination.
