Media blackout in Vancouver gov't union strike

Residential garbage trucks rumbled through North Vancouver yesterday for the first time in three weeks, but Vancouver's municipal strike continued underneath a cloak of silence. Representatives of the city's three striking unions continued to meet with city officials at the bargaining table yesterday after resuming talks this weekend. There is a complete media blackout in effect. Vancouver's outside workers, including its garbage collectors, have been off the job for 2½ weeks. The city's inside and library workers are also on strike.
