Just weeks after becoming electricity-restoring heroes during December’s ice storm, Toronto Hydro workers appear ready to test the public’s goodwill. On Thursday, CityNews reports, the utility’s workers voted 99 per cent in favour of a strike, apparently as a result of a dispute with management over benefits and working conditions. Negotiations between the two sides are ongoing, but a work stoppage could happen in February if there’s no agreement before then.
