Thank you for to all those who took the time to attend a strike vote meeting last week. Your elected bargaining team has reaffirmed that their priorities represent the will of the membership as they work to achieve a solid negotiated agreement.
You've spoken with a strong, unified voice, and provided your team with clear direction. Together, you voted overwhelmingly in favour of strike action, should it be necessary.
The team returns to the bargaining table today, and the strike mandate will allow them to bargain from a position of strength. Contract negotiation is tough, and we wish them the best as they face the employer.
