TORONTO - Shelter and child care workers at Anduhyaun Inc. have voted 100% in favour of strike action if they are not able to reach a collective agreement by November 1.
“These workers have no desire to disrupt services to women, children and families,” said CUPE National Representative Jim Morrison. “But they want their employer to know that they are serious about protecting their health and safety and getting a fair contract.”
The 26 members of CUPE 4232 have been without a contract for more than two years. They are seeking improvements to wages, safety of staff at the shelter for abused women and children, and job security for non-aboriginal staff.
The parties are scheduled to resume mediation on October 25 with a legal strike or lockout date set for November 1.
