**EXPRESS YOURSELVES AND ATTEND A SPECIAL MEETING!**
Unlike voting in an election or on a tentative agreement, strike mandates are voted on during special meetings.
To exercise your right to vote, you must attend one of the four (4) meetings.You can attend more than one meeting, but can only vote once.
Note that this method was used in previous negotiations, as well as at other locals and unions.
This year, in addition to special in-person meetings, we have scheduled two zoom meetings for those who are on layovers and who may not attend in person.
**In-person meetings are to be favored. In order to improve our working conditions, we must mobilize **
**We, therefore, ask our members for a STRONG strike mandate**
This mandate will ensure compliance with the provisions of the Canada Labor Code regarding the acquisition of the right to strike, as well as enabling the Bargaining Committee to utilize leverage at the bargaining table.
A strike mandate is good for 60 days.
Depending on when conciliation ends (earliest DEC 12th), the parties must respect a 21-day cooling off period before taking any job strike action.
Ask your questions and show your solidarity in order to improve YOUR working conditions!
