For Immediate Release:
Strike Action by MoveUP at VantageOne Credit Union
The Union MoveUP, which represents 34 of our employees, has commenced strike action including picketing at VantageOne Credit Union’s two unionized locations – Main and North Vernon. As a result, we have no choice other than to close these two locations.
We are very disappointed in this action as we have made every effort to conclude a collective agreement before Christmas. “As a member-owned financial institution, we greatly value our employees so it’s disappointing to see the action and how the union is characterizing the situation,” says Glenn Benischek, CEO.
VantageOne offers excellent wages and benefits, including an RRSP program and paid sick days. All of which are available to part-time employees. VantageOne is also proud that it has avoided layoffs during the pandemic.
VantageOne has provided the staff and union an offer that meets or exceeds the agreements reached with other credit unions in the province. VantageOne remains open to returning to the bargaining table.
