SSO bargaining: Union files unfair labour practice

PSAC has filed an unfair labour practice complaint with the Public Service Labour and Employment Relations Board due to the employer’s ongoing refusal to allow the union to post bargaining updates in the workplace.

Such refusal violates our legal right to share information with our members about bargaining and interferes in the work we do to represent you, our members. We have asked the labour board to ensure SSO immediately cease and desist from preventing employees from engaging in these lawful union activities.

Our bargaining team will resume negotiations with Statistical Survey Operations (SSO) from September 12 to 14, 2017.

The bargaining session that had been scheduled from June 13 to 15, 2017, was cancelled at the employer’s request due to changes in their bargaining team.
