Edmonton city workers are about to go on strike — here’s what you need to know about service disruptions.

One of the City of Edmonton’s largest unions, Civic Service Union 52 (CSU 52), has provided official notice that its more than 5,000 members will begin labour action. The strike was initially planned to begin at 11 am today; however, following further negotiations, the start time has been amended to 11 am on Friday, March 15.

The strike notice follows weeks of negotiations between the City of Edmonton and CSU 52.

“It’s regrettable that it has come to this, but our members have been more than patient and fair, asking for what is reasonable after five years of stagnant wages,” said Lanny Chudyk, president of CSU 52, in a news release.

In a statement to the media, Edmonton City Manager Andre Corbould said the City is “disappointed” that CSU 52 did not accept its final offer, which included a 7.25% wage increase over five years, but it is prepared to respond to the labour disruption.
