Potential Food Services strike at UNBC and ramifications to CUPE

As many of you are aware the Unite Here 40 local that provides food services to UNBC has conducted a strike vote and now is legally in a position to go on strike. CUPE 3799 has been in discussions with Unite for what a strike potentially would look like at UNBC. We are also in discussion with CUPE National and the executive will be meeting over lunch hour on Tuesday September 11th. Look for an email out from Caroline, President of #3799 sometime later Tuesday.

AS a union we have to support our other fellow unions and we will. What that support looks like will be determined as per applicable laws, contracts and the guidance from CUPE national.
