Note change of time.  Voting is now from 7:00AM to 9:00PM – Updated December 2nd.

The strike vote location and details have been announced.  Local 468 will have our vote at the location and time below:

Date: Thursday, December 4, 2014
Time: 7:00 AM – 9:00 PM
Location: Ambassador Hotel & Conference Centre, Lisbon Room
1550 Princess Street, Kingston ON
Note: Identification must be provided in order to obtain your ballots

Local 468 members will receive two (2) ballots; one (1) ballot for the Central Agreement, one (1) for the Unified Agreement.

The questions on the ballots are below (transcribed from OPS Divisionals floor) and includes notes from your bargaining team.

Central Agreement

  1. YES, I authorize the bargaining team to call a strike if necessary
  2. NO, I do not authorize the bargaining team to call a strike if necessary

Your bargaining team recommends you to vote YES.

Unified Agreement

  1. YES, I authorize the bargaining team to call a strike if necessary
  2. NO, I do not authorize the bargaining team to call a strike if necessary

Your bargaining team recommends you to vote YES.

Our bargaining team needs a strong mandate to go back to the table to get us and future OPSers a fair contract.  It is important everyone comes out to vote.  This isn’t a case of whether it’s a done deal or not.  It’s a case of numbers.  If we have a showing of 100% of OPSEU members coming out to cast ballots, that would be a victory in itself.  Every ballot counts!  Come out to vote!
