FB bargaining: Strike vote extended to May 23 due to overwhelming response

FB group members have been attending strike vote sessions in unprecedented numbers. To ensure all members have an opportunity to vote, PSAC-CIU has added two more national strike vote sessions.

  • Tuesday, May 21: 10:00 a.m. ET  in English
  • Thursday, May 23: 12:00 noon ET  in French

The voting period closes May 23 at 10:00 p.m. ET.

It’s not too late. Show the employer you mean business.

A strong strike vote sends a signal to Treasury Board and Canada Border Services Agency  that you’re prepared to fight for a new collective agreement that includes fair wages, access to telework for non-uniformed members, stronger job protections, protections from contracting out, and equitable retirement benefits.

It also shows the employer that you are firmly behind your bargaining team and prepared to take job action to reach a fair deal. This gives the bargaining team even more leverage at the upcoming mediation sessions in June. It will help them win a good contract and push back against CBSA’s concessions.

All members who have not yet voted are strongly encouraged to attend one of these sessions.

How to vote

Voting credentials have been sent to your personal, non-work email or by mail to your home address if we don’t have a personal email on file. You will need these credentials to register for a strike vote session and cast your ballot. If you do not have your voting information, contact your PSAC regional office.

To ensure maximum participation, please share this information with coworkers who may not have voted yet.
