We have been notified this morning that the Labour Relations Board will be conducting the Last Offer Vote, starting Tuesday, August 30, 2022, ending Wednesday, August 31, 2022. You will be voting on whether or not to accept your employer’s last offer for your new collective agreement. Here is what you need to know before you vote:
WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?
Your bargaining committee rejected your employer’s last offer proposal. When that happens, your employer can ask its employees to vote on its last offer. That vote (now scheduled for this week) is called a last offer vote.
