UWOSA Members Deliver 95% Strike Mandate

720 UWOSA members turned out to vote and delivered the negotiations team a 95% Strike Mandate. Ballots were cast on Tuesday, October 5th (following an information meeting), and again on Wednesday, October 6.

UWOSA has been without a contract since June 30, 2010.

"We will continue to bargain in good faith to achieve a fair and equitable collective agreement for our members," said Deb Novakowski, UWOSA President. "We will continue to resist attempts to erode the benefits we've worked so hard to achieve for our members since we certified over a decade ago."

UWOSA filed for conciliation to help advance negotiations. The first meeting with the conciliator is Friday, October 8th. UWOSA members will not be in a legal strike position until a no-board report has been requested and 17 days have passed after its authorization by the Ontario Minister of Labour.
