Strike Mandate returned by Yukon Hospital Workers, Local Y025

High member turnout nets overwhelming support of strike mandate

YEU/PSAC Local Y025 members, employees of the Yukon Hospital Corporation, have voted overwhelmingly in favour of giving their Local a strike mandate. The strike vote itself also had an outstanding member turnout.

Employees have worked without a contract since September 2022. After having been at the table for over eight months, the Local’s bargaining team applied for conciliation on November 28, 2023. The bargaining team is in conciliation this week.

“The outcome of this strike vote sends a clear message to the Employer that they must come to the table with a fair deal for members,” states Justin Lemphers, President of Yukon Employees’ Union. “Yukon Employees’ Union stands in solidarity with hospital corporation employees as they continue with these challenging negotiations.”
