MONTREAL — Quebec liquor board employees say they’ve reached an agreement in principle with their employer.
The union representing the employees announced the news at about 8 a.m. on Saturday morning and it was quickly confirmed by the Crown corporation.
A spokeswoman for the union declined to comment on the agreement, which has not yet been ratified by the 5,500 members.
Employees have held ten different strike days since mid-July.
The one-day strikes forced the temporary closure of many of the province’s liquor stores, although some remained open and staffed by management.
The employees have been without a contract since March 2017.
