People who use the Canadian Hearing Society and their families are frustrated with the current strike.

Canadian Union of Public Employee members with CHS are on strike after working without a contract for the last four years.

Wendy Rachon, who dad uses the Timmins CHS, says she lives in Sudbury and has to come to town on a regular basis to help her father get to to his appointments and buy groceries.

She says not having CHS councillors coming to her dad’s house on a regular basis is becoming dangerous.

Picket Captain for Timmins Amy Fleury says they went back to the bargaining table last week and are waiting you hear on if the employer will bargain again. She says they want to get back to work.

CHS says they have put an offer on the table that addressed the wage concerns.
