[ANTIGONISH, NS] - A Nova Scotia town has locked out five unionized workers from its electric utility after the union filed a strike notice.

The mayor of Antigonish says they implemented the lockout so they could have a team ready if workers went on strike.

The dispute centres on how unused sick leave is paid out upon retirement.

Mayor Carl Chisholm says the town offered a 30 per cent payout, but the union wants 100 per cent.

He says the lockout will not affect electrical service in Antigonish.
