Strike Mandate Results

Posted on 2/13/2024

In a resounding display of solidarity and determination, here are the results for the strike mandate votes:

Message from Lanny Chudyk, President of Civic Service Union 52:

“It is clear that City Council and Administration are out of touch with their employee base. We have sent a very clear message: we will not settle for an unfair agreement and watch as dollars are continuously mispent without considering those who actually perform the front-line, core services on behalf of Edmontonians.

While we have overwhelmingly voted in favour of a strike mandate, we do not want to have to withdraw our services. Our goal is still to reach a fair and equitable settlement at the negotiation table that supports members and tax payers.

Thank you for standing together in unwavering determination to secure a fair and equitable agreement. The strong strike mandate speaks volumes about the collective resolve of our membership in the negotiation process.”

What happens next?

  • Our hope is that the employer will come back to the bargaining table and continue to negotiate toward a fair and equitable agreement to avoid a work stoppage.
  • More details will be shared in the coming days.
