99.3% VOTE IN FAVOUR TO STRIKE
Thank you to all members who took time out of their weekend to attend the strike mandate vote on Sunday. Like most others, I can think of many other things I would rather be doing during my time off but it is crucial to attend such meetings when our livelihood is put at risk.
The strike vote of 99.3% (in favour) shows that members have had enough of the continued government attacks and poor treatment from our employer and are not willing to accept any concessions during this round of bargaining. This is the highest percentage vote in the history of CUPE 5555.
We now await the results from the rest of the 109 CUPE bargaining unit locals across Ontario before we move forward with direction from the O.S.B.C.C.
We will provide updates by e blast and on our website when available.
President CUPE 5555
