Sisters and Brothers,
Our membership came out in full support today. The results are as follows : Local 707 members voted 99.4% in favour of supporting our bargaining team through the 2023 Bargaining Process.
On or around Labour Day, Unifor plans to announce the company designated as the strike target, and will continue negotiations with that company until reaching a settlement and no later than the strike deadline on September 18th at 11:59 p.m.
For additional information and background, please keep referring to our uniforlocal707.ca website and let your friends and coworkers know that for factual information, the local will post it as it comes as we have over the past 3 years.
As a side note, we are still accepting your email addresses for the upcoming ratification. Over 85% of our membership has sent their email addresses already and we await those still outstanding. We want 100% of our members to participate so please speak with your fellow members and ask them if they have signed up yet.
On Behalf of the entire bargaining team as they are away bargaining on our behalf,
Unifor Local 707
