Local 88 – St. F.X. Support Staff reject employer’s offer
February 15, 2013
Antigonish â€“ Members of NSGEU Local 88, St. F.X. support staff, have voted in favour of rejecting the employerâ€™s last offer.
â€œOur members are looking for some headway on two issues most important to the membership; wages and the classification process,â€ says Joan Jessome, President of the Nova Scotia Government & General Employees Union. â€œThe majority of the members stand firmly behind their Bargaining Committeeâ€™s efforts to achieve an agreement that contains improvements in those areas.â€
The classification issue was central to the members of Local 88 when they first unionized in December of 2009.
The union has asked the conciliator will file his report with the Department of Labour and Advanced Education on Friday which triggers the 14-day countdown to a legal strike date. Â This would be 12:01 am on March 8.
There are approximately 135 members of the local who provide administrative, clerical, technical, and library services for St. F.X.
The Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union represents over 30,000 women and men who provide quality public services Nova Scotians count on everyday.
