Based on our most recent bargaining session with the Employer, your Unit 2 bargaining team has elected to call a strike vote.
The strike vote meeting will occur at a virtual meeting being held online via Zoom on Tuesday, May 10th at 2 p.m. The vote itself will occur online after the meeting (beginning at 4 p.m.) and will continue until 11:55 p.m. on Thursday May 12th.
All members in good standing are able to vote. That is, those members who are currently employed, who have a contract in hand for the upcoming semester, or who have worked as sessional faculty within the past two semesters (fall 2021 in winter 2022).
All members in good standing will receive a ballot sent to them electronically by Election Runner. If you believe you are entitled to vote and do not receive a ballot, please contact Brad@cupe3906.org
Balloting for the strike vote will begin shortly after the strike vote meeting held on Tuesday, May 10 and will continue until 11:55 PM on Thursday, May 12. Results will be announced thereafter. We cannot guarantee the exact time that you will receive the ballot.
The strike vote meeting on Tuesday will consist of the bargaining team discussing the issues currently at the table and explaining the context for the strike quote. All members are entitled to vote, regardless of whether or not you attend the meeting. We would certainly encourage you to attend the meeting to meet a more informed choice.
Please note that you may need to look in your junk/spam folder for a ballot.
We encourage members to vote “YES” in the strike vote to send the Employer a strong message. It is the best way to secure a fair and reasonable agreement that provides you with the gains that you deserve!
