Union requests No Board to set strike deadline for Metro members
On March 19, 2018, the Local Union conducted strike votes at meetings across the province. The membership gave the Union an overwhelming strike mandate of 97%.
Since that time, the Union met with the employer over a number of days: March 27 & 28, and April 4-6. Although the parties did make some progress, there are a number of outstanding issues that are still far from agreement.
Your Union Negotiating Committee has requested a No Board Report from the Ministry of Labour (MOL).
Once the MOL issues the Report, a strike deadline will be in effect. The Union anticipates this deadline to be sometime in early May.
In the meantime, the parties have agreed to meet again on May 1 and 2. The Union will update Members if any new information becomes available.
Thank you for your patience and solidarity through this process.
