Re: HEU Staff Union (PEA-HESU) job action
The PEA-HESU representing HEU’s unionized staff served strike notice on HEU earlier this week.
HEU has had productive negotiations with PEA-HESU over the last few months but we have not concluded a collective agreement.
The parties have agreed to meet with mediator Vince Ready next week.
This morning, the PEA-HESU has commenced strike action.
As a result, we expect that HEU representatives may be unavailable today.
If you have an urgent labour relations matter please contact your representative. If you are unsuccessful, you can leave a message at 1-877-456-7185 or 604-456-7185. We will respond as quickly as possible.
HEU is committed to reaching a fair deal with our staff, and building an even stronger union together.
This is a weekend to celebrate the collective bargaining rights that HEU has fought so hard to secure. We wish all our members and staff a Happy Labour Day Weekend!
