SYLVAN LAKE, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 13, 2012) - Employees at Association Ambulance in Sylvan Lake, Alberta voted 65% in favor of joining the Canadian Union of Public Employees. The vote was counted last week after a protracted legal battle at the Alberta Labour Relations Board.
CUPE Alberta President, Marle Roberts, said the twelve full time and assorted part time employees joined the union to address workplace issues related to consistency of rules, schedules and overtime.
"This small group has now become a part of the largest union in Canada," said Roberts. "They now have the full force of our 630,000 members supporting them. And they have access to our expert legal, negotiating, and research teams."
