We know job action deeply affects the community. We know because we and our families rely on the ferries, too. We don’t want to shut them down.
Taking job action is a difficult decision to make, and was a last resort after months of attempts at negotiation with the employer. We have been without a collective agreement since March, and we need to get back to the bargaining table. We need the employer to address our concerns and consider our proposal. Job action is the only leverage we have to save our service, and it can only be successful with the community’s support.
