The Membership votes:
A strong turnout of Vancouver Public Library Workers, CUPE Local 391, gave a resounding response to contract negotiations with the Employer. 97% of the membership who cast ballots are are in favour of strike action if the Employer continues to ignore our proposals. This Employer, after voting to close a cost-effective work unit and contract out its work wants to:
- Delete the Technological Change language. We are proposing that the Tech change language provide for training and job placement within VPL across all classifications.
- Skip re-posting when a subsequent vacancy occurs in the same classification
- Delete 8.6.2 which provides for the Employer to write a written explanation explaining the reasons why an employee did not get a posting.
- Sick leave restructuring

97 % – We are solidarity personified.
