We have been negotiating towards a renewal collective agreement since November with our most recent sessions being last week. This set of negotiations is complex because the existing collective agreement was not originally bargained by the BCGEU and we are looking to make significant structural changes.
Your BCGEU Bargaining committee has made some progress and we continue working on non-monetary clauses. The talks have been cordial and are at the early stages of the process. Our next bargaining session will occur on Feb 1, 2017.
Your patience and support are appreciated and we’ll update you following our next session.
If you have any questions, please contact any member of the Bargaining Committee listed below.
