One of the questions we have received in the last few hours is, “When would we be in a legal position to strike?” We currently have two (2) applications pending in front of the Labour Relations Board. Our legal team is attempting to have them dealt with in February however, no date has been set at this time. We will not be in a legal strike position until these cases are resolved. There are other regulations that we must follow which will affect when we are in a legal position for job action.
For this and other reasons, we will NOT be in a legal position to take any job action or be locked out in the next two (2) to three (3) weeks or longer. We will provide more information at the CUPE 1975 Member’s Meeting which will take place at 4:30 pm on January 31, 2019, in room 1150 Health Sciences Theatre (East Wing)
