The votes are in. 71.4 % of the membership have said yes to the memorandum of agreement and a return to work. The Vancouver Public Library Board still must ratify the agreement tomorrow morning before it becomes official.
We are pleased to be back so that we can once again offer to the citizens of Vancouver access to the great service that each and every one of the membership provides. Unfortunately, this is a bittersweet sentiment, as more than half of our membership have not had this work fully recognized in this new collective agreement.
Nevertheless, the fight for our issues, in particular the fight for Pay Equity, will continue beyond the venue of the bargaining table, and we believe we will one day soon realize our goals.
Cupe 391 kicks ass.
