If we decide to go on strike, when would it happen?

I work with vulnerable clients; I would feel ethically obligated and need to let clients know about service disruption in advance.


Our recent communications to members outlined a rough time frame; based on all the steps required under the Act, May is likely the earliest we could anticipate any strike action.

We are governed by the Yukon Public Service Labour Relations Act and the timelines and requirements are quite different from either the Canada Labour Code or the Employment Standards Act. Please also refer to our updated FAQ page for a timeline.

For a full understanding of the legislation affecting bargaining by Yukon government workers, please click HERE to review the YPSLRA.  Collective Bargaining is addressed in sections 39 - 67.
