The Vice-President of Media Union BC has now confirmed that staff of the Alaska Highway News voted in favour of a strike at a meeting on Thursday.

John Savage states that Thursday night’s vote “overwhelmingly” supported strike action, as did votes at every location owned by Glacier Newspapers.

The company’s assets include the Prince George Citizen, the Northerner, the Dawson Creek Daily News, the Northern Horizon, the Mirror and of course the Alaska Highway News.
