GardaWorld Application Update 7 - Vote Ordered!

Good afternoon GardaWorld YYC workers,

CIRB Application Update - Vote Ordered!

The CIRB Industrial Relations Officer sent a report to the Board for a decision last week. This morning we received the decision and it confirms that a majority of the workplace has shown support for Unifor by signing a union card! With this show of support, the CIRB has ordered a vote!

While the vote is now ordered, we are awaiting the details and dates of the vote. We are hopeful this will be completed early this week

We will let you know as soon as we have further information from the CIRB.
