Unionized Algoma Public Health workers have overwhelmingly voted in favour of a strike.
The workers, represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), voted 85% in favour of a strike in hopes of achieving a fair agreement.
“The last thing we want is a strike, and we remain committed to delivering the highest quality public services, while we make every effort to reach a negotiated settlement,” said CUPE 1528 president Rochella McGaughey, in a press release. “But we are sending a message to our employer that we mean business and are prepared to stand together to defend our collective rights and achieve a fair contract for our members.” (more)
