Union Vote Update - September 27, 2017

Dear Friends, 

I want to give you an update about the upcoming Public Sector Labour Relations Transition Act (PSLRTA) vote.

It was anticipated that the vote would occur towards the end of October. Unfortunately, this has been delayed.

After several discussions involving ONA, OPSEU, your employer, and the Ontario Labour Relations Board, there are some outstanding issues that cannot be resolved through mediation. This means there must be formal submissions before the Labour Board in October.

ONA is hoping that there will be a timely decision and that the vote will be scheduled for November.

We’ll keep you posted along the way because we understand how important this is for you.

For more info on why ONA is the best choice, please see our ONA Lakeridge Health website, VoteONA.org, and the ONA/OPSEU Contract Comparison.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a small group or one-on-one meeting, please email me any time. You can also contact us at 1-844-762-2342or LHvote@ona.org, or drop by our Oshawa campaign office at 302 Stevenson Road North (Monday - Thursday, 10:00 am - 4:00 p.m.).
