Ballots from the vote were sealed when PHS challenged union certification. That pro- cess was adjourned because of the COVID-19 pandemic. With the vote now counted, it is expected that the labour board will issue the official cer- tification soon, says the union. "Our newest members do crucial life-saving work," says Andrew Ledger, CUPE, 1004 president. "The 100 per cent yes vote demonstrates the strong solidarity of these work- ers."
