Canadian Hearing Society employees launch strike action
More than 220 unionized workers include counsellors, speech language pathologists, interpreters
Employees with the Canadian Hearing Society have launched strike action.
The Canadian Union of Public Employees says management rejected all of the union's proposals and the 227 employees had no choice.
The union says the two sides met over the weekend with a mediator, but couldn't reach a deal.
