More than 8,000 members of a union representing LCBO workers have voted in favour of going on strike.

The Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) says 97 per cent of members who took part in the vote, were in favour of a strike. Some 8,060 LCBO workers participated — roughly 86 per cent — making it their largest strike vote ever.

"Your bargaining team is back at the table this week. Armed with this powerful strike vote, we will reinforce our key demands in this round," an announcement on the union's website on Saturday reads.

"So far the LCBO has refused to bargain. Now, we'll tell them [and Doug Ford] exactly what they need to offer to avoid strike action."

The union has not said when the potential job action could begin. It said it is holding a meeting on Monday to provide bargaining and strike timeline updates.

CBC Toronto has reached out to the province and LCBO but did not receive an immediate response.

The vote comes after documents obtained by Radio-Canada revealed that Ontario Premier Doug Ford's order to the LCBO to bring back paper bags caught the provincial liquor store's senior executives off guard and sent its management scrambling to procure new supply.

The province also recently announced convenience stores, big box outlets and some gas stations will be able to sell beer, wine and other ready-made drinks starting in September.
