Vote results kircchoff

We received the vote results today and we had more support than we have ever had. Regrettably, we did not receive the number of votes we needed.

The important thing is almost every employee exercised their right to participate and while the result is not what many had hoped for, it is the democratic will of the workers.

The results were:

Number of total casted votes: 269

133 Yes

135 No

1 Segregated Ballots

The 1 segregated ballot was challenged by the employer.

Moving Forward

We want you to know that you all have worked very hard to get to this point over the past year and that alone is a great achievement! We continue to be here for you and ask that you reach out if you have any questions.

This also means that by the Ontario Labour Relations Act rules, any union is prevented from filing a new union application for the period of 1 year.

We are hopeful that the slim margin that has chosen the status quo will prompt the employer to make some positive changes in the workplace. However, we remain available should there be issues in the future.

Best of luck as you continue to move forward.
