Local 73 ON STRIKE: Monday, October 24 at 8am

NSGEU Members from  Local 73 Annapolis Valley Regional Centre of Education will be on STRIKE as of 8 a.m. on Monday, October 24th.

Please watch your emails and nsgeu.ca for more information on how you can support your fellow NSGEU members.

Currently, people who do the same jobs are paid differently depending on where they work in the province. This practice is unfair and needs to end.  There needs to be parity for educational workers from one end of Nova Scotia to the other.

Members of Local 73 include Educational Assistants, Early Childhood Educators, Student Support Workers, Outreach workers, Parent Navigators, Library Personnel, Child and Youth Practitioners, Native Student Advisors, Literacy Support Workers and Student Supervisors.

The union served its 48-hour strike notice on October 7th, meaning Local 73 members at the AVRCE are in a legal strike position. The union will now confer with its members in order to make final preparations for a strike. Some advance notice of the strike date will be given so that parents may make alternate arrangements for students who will be directly affected by the job action.

Local 73 members will need your support and encouragement.  We will share picket line locations and feel free to share your words of encouragement with the members at communications@nsgeu.ca .
