Local 63A-Metro Community Living Members Vote in Favour of Strike to Back Bargaining Demands

Good morning,

We are very pleased to announce that members of your Local have voted strongly in support of strike action, if needed, to back your bargaining committee’s demands at the bargaining table.

Seventy-seven per cent of your local participated in the vote, and of those who participated, 98 per cent voted in favour of strike action.

We would like to thank the members for your strong show of support for your bargaining committee.

The union has filed for conciliation, and we are hoping to have dates scheduled before the New Year.

What is Conciliation? Conciliation is a requirement under the Nova Scotia Trade Union Act that takes place when regular negotiations fail to reach an agreement. Either party may apply to the Minister of Labour and Advanced Education requesting the services of a Conciliation Officer. The Conciliation Officer does not have the power to impose a settlement on either party. Instead, their role is to mediate between the parties and help them reach an agreement.

We will continue to keep you updated as bargaining progresses.

If you have questions or concerns about the bargaining process, please contact a member of your bargaining committee:
