SYDNEY, NS – Employees of Maple Hill Manor have voted 100% in favour of strike action to back their union’s contract demands.
The 65 members of Local 2765 voted Monday. CUPE National Rep. Kathy MacLeod says, “Employees are unhappy about some local issues, primarily the removal of hours of work and no accrual of vacation. “
“As well”, says MacLeod, “the local has charged the employer under Section 53 of the Trade Union Act with an ‘unfair labour practice’, after they posted the final offer package to the members at the workplace before the union bargaining committee had the opportunity to present the package to the membership at a meeting.
“This is clearly prohibited under the Act,” says MacLeod.
