SYDNEY, N.S. - The union representing school support staff across Nova Scotia says a walkout won't happen before 2010.
The 3,700 members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees are employed as office staff, cleaners, bus drivers and teacher's aides in seven school districts.
Union members voted 91 per cent in favour of job action on Friday to back wage and benefit demands.
After 14 days, the union will be in a legal strike position and can give 48 hours notice to the minister of labour to begin job action.
However, union spokeswoman Kathy MacLeod says members will wait until after the holidays to begin any strike action and are monitoring the spread of H1N1 in the province.
MacLeod says members remain hopeful that they'll reach a tentative deal.
They have been without a contract since March 31, 2007.
