Local 66 Regional Residential Services Society (RRSS) – Strike Votes & Information Sessions Scheduled

As many of you are aware, talks between your bargaining committee and your employer reached an impasse on April 12, 2013.

The union filed for conciliation on April 15 and will be holding strike votes on the following dates to back your demands for a fair agreement that recognizes the valuable work you do for your residents.

Strike votes will be held at the NSGEU office:

  • Wednesday, May 22nd from 9 a.m. to noon & 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Thursday, May 23rd from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Friday, May 24th from 9 a.m. to noon

Without a strong strike mandate, your bargaining committee will not be able to achieve a collective agreement that we can recommend to you for acceptance.

Currently the employer has proposed a reduction in your sick leave as well as a lower pay scale for probationary employees. There are also other concessions that affect employees’ rights in regards to probation, job posting, that the employer has refused to take off the table.

Your bargaining committee continues to be committed to achieving the best collective agreement possible for all Local 66 members, and we will keep you informed of any developments. Thank you for your continued support.

If you have any questions, please contact a member of your bargaining committee, or the NSGEU at 424-4063 (toll free 1-877-556-7438), or e-mail us atinquiry@nsgeu.ca.
