At last week's Special General Membership on Bargaining meeting (February 3, 2022), the membership overwhelmingly passed the following motion calling for the YUFA Executive Committee to conduct a vote authorizing possible job action if satisfactory settlement cannot be reached at the table.
In order to provide a firmer basis for progress in the current protracted round of negotiations, the YUFA membership calls upon the YUFA Executive to conduct a vote authorizing possible job action as per Article 9.3 of the YUFA Constitution if a satisfactory settlement cannot be reached.
YES: 95% (156 votes)
NO: 5% (8 votes)
Total voters (who did not abstain): 164
This would be the first strike mandate vote taken by YUFA members in 25 years. Information about our contract negotiations can be found here.
