CiviVolunteer is not fully tested for 5.x version and might have compatibility issue like you are facing. This issue has been fixed and is probably waiting in PR queue for it to get merged in next release.

You can either download the patch from here or wait for next release.

    Thanks Pradeep - oddly enough CiviVolunteer was not giving any errors under 5.6 until we updated our PHP version to 7.1 from 7.0.

  • Yes, PHP 7 supports strict rules. If you had turned on strict rules for 5.6 you could have encountered same error. Oct 9, 2018 at 21:39
  • Thanks - I have applied the patch and accepted your answer.
