Due to the recent and rapid escalation of Covid-19, UFCW 832 has decided to delay the final vote on March 24 and step back from potential strike action on April 6, 2020.
“Given the stress and uncertainty that everyone is going through right now, we are postponing our strike position and bargaining with Winnipeg School Division 1, until a more appropriate time,” said Jeff Traeger, President of UFCW Local 832.
The Union will look at new bargaining dates in the future, when both sides are able to meet.
UFCW 832 represents roughly 95 bus drivers for Winnipeg School Division 1. The current collective agreement expired on June 30, 2019.
