The Saskatchewan Employment Act allows for employers to ask the Labour Relations Board to administer and carry out a vote. This is what your Employer has done. The Employer wants NEEMS members to vote on the Employer’s April 26, 2019 offer.
HSAS has recently received concerns about the quality/legibility of some of the documents in the voting package sent out by the Saskatchewan Labour Relations Board (LRB) in the Employer’s Forced Vote. It is not known how many members received poor quality documents.
The results of the forced vote ballot count are in. Of the 28 ballots sent to the members of HSAS by the Labour Relations Board (LRB) – 19 ballots were returned. The final outcome of the vote is based on the ballots returned within the time frame specified by the LRB (in the postal system on or before July 25, 2019) and that are cast either in favour of accepting the North East EMS Employer’s last contract proposal or in favour of rejecting the last contract proposal. 4 of the 19 ballots were returned outside the time frame specified by the LRB. The final count was based on 15 returned ballots.
