Local 97 – Registered Nurses at CDHA – Update on Vote

The passage of Bill 1 has suspended all collective bargaining and essential services negotiations until April 1st, 2015. The NSGEU wants to ensure the members of Local 97 are able to exercise their democratic right to vote to either accept or reject their employer’s final offer. Many members are concerned about their increments and retro pay if we do not settle your outstanding collective agreement before the new district health authority is formed and you are forced into the NSNU.

There will now be more opportunities for you to vote. 

NSGEU office: 255 John Savage Avenue, Burnside

Thursday. October 9

Voting: anytime between 10:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m.

Information Sessions: 10:30 a.m. to noon, 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., & 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

For those who are unable to come to the NSGEU office to vote, we will also have a voting vehicle stationed at:

Halifax Infirmary Site: Mobile voting vehicle will be across from the hospital entrance on Summer Street. Voting and information on Employer’s final offer.

Thursday

11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

We only require 50% plus 1 of the members that vote, not 50% plus 1 of the entire membership as would be the case for a strike vote.

We will be announcing the results of the vote on Friday evening.
