REGINA -- Hundreds of striking union Crown workers marched through downtown Regina on Friday morning.

The workers gathered in Victoria Park, before walking to the head offices of SaskPower, SaskEnergy and SaskTel.

All of the striking Unifor workers in Regina took part in the march, and some bussed in from out of town.

The union says it is calling for a 2.3 per cent wage increase, similar to what the province's MLAs received this year.

The province says it has offered a five per cent increase over five years. But, that increase comes with a two-year wage freeze, which the union says it won't accept.

Police blocked traffic in the areas where the workers were marching throughout the morning.
