We have all heard it before, every vote matters, this is especially true in a STRIKE vote. During a STIKE vote the results are calculated as a percentage of the total membership, not just a percentage of those who voted. In short, a non-vote is a no-vote in the final tally.
It is also important to understand what a STRIKE means. Your bargaining unit has turned down the employer’s offer. A strong STRIKE vote gives your bargaining team a much stronger position once they return to the bargaining table. A vote to STRIKE does not mean that you will be walking a picket line next week. A strong vote to STRIKE is a powerful message to your employer and will help raise public awareness of the issues with Nova Scotians. At times, a strong STRIKE vote is the quickest route to getting a deal.
