Earlier this week, the Alberta Labour Relations Board released their most recent New Applications Report. In the report is a new application for union certification in Alberta.
The application was submitted by Local 46 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees on 24 June 2022. They’re applying for union certification for a group of 7 workers who are working for the library board of the Town of Redcliff.
The ALRB has scheduled a hearing date on this application for 11 July 2022.
The Redcliff library workers’s unionization drive is the second such effort led by the CUPE in Alberta this month. Earlier this month, CUPE announced that they are trying to help workers at the Calgary Drop-In Centre unionize.
These two drives follow the successful unionization of municipal workers in the City of Chestermere last month, which CUPE Alberta also organized.
