REGINA (CP) — Saskatchewan Crown employees are planning to leave picket lines and return to work for at least one day.

Picket lines went up at various locations Friday as upwards of 5,000 employees at six Crown corporations and one Crown agency walked off their jobs.

Chris Macdonald with Unifor says employees will be working to rule on Tuesday to show the Saskatchewan government that they can be unpredictable.

He says full-scale picket lines went up Monday at SaskTel call centres in Saskatoon and Regina in order to shut out management.

Similar action was taken at the Poplar River Power Plant in Coronach, Sask.
