Strike officially averted: CSU 52 members accept deal with City of Edmonton

Members of Civic Service Union 52 (CSU 52) have officially accepted the City of Edmonton’s contract offer, ending months of bargaining and averting job action.

The president of CSU 52 said Monday afternoon that members employed by the City of Edmonton voted over the weekend to accept the city’s four-year offer.

Lanny Chudyk said 77.8 per cent of members voted in the ratification vote, with 83.5 per cent of those people voting in favour of the deal.

“While it’s unfortunate that this process has taken this long, we are glad that it’s come to a conclusion,” Chudyk said in a statement.

The same four-year deal was offered to CSU 52 members employed by the Edmonton Public Library.

The two sets of union employees are in separate bargaining units. A ratification vote is still open for EPL employees. It will close at noon Wednesday, with results expected to be released later that afternoon.
