Mon, 20 Nov 2017 18:54 GMT

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Nov. 20, 2017) - (TSX:LB) - The Bank deplores the disruption caused by the union demonstration held this morning in front of its head office and wants to re-establish the facts following the false allegations made by the union leaders.

No campaign of de-unionization or intimidation has been organized by the Bank, as the leaders of the local SEPB and the FTQ falsely claim. The decision whether or not to be represented by a union belongs exclusively to the employees.

Laurentian Bank's priority remains to serve its clients well; it is doing its utmost to ensure that its activities continue normally and thanks them for their understanding.
