Strathcona Gardens recreation complex will reopen Tuesday after the union representing workers of the facility and the regional district agreed to mediation and arbitration.
According to a press release issued Monday, the Strathcona Regional District and the United Steelworker (USW) Local 1-1937 have agreed to resolve an ongoing labour dispute through a mediation and arbitration process.
As part of that agreement, Strathcona Gardens staff will return to work while sides use an independent mediator or arbitrator in an effort to hash out a new collective agreement. Workers have been on strike for the past 10-weeks.
Strathcona Gardens will be available for booked ice user groups beginning on Feb. 1 and the entire complex will be open to the general public on Feb. 2.
