Local 328 Township of Georgian Bay votes 94% to Strike if Necessary!

Last week members of Local 328 voted 94% in favour of a strike in support of their bargaining team.  Local 328 Township of Georgian Bay members include all inside workers, outside  workers including the roads department, fire and parks & recreation services at the Township. After struggling to get the bargaining dates we did have, the employer has not been willing to negotiate a reasonable and fair contract.

In support of the members we ask that all OPSEU members and especially those that live in the Township of Georgian Bay area ( or who own property in the township) contact the Mayor and council members and urge them to negotiate a fair deal.
