Date:              June 16, 2015

To:                  All BCGEU Members at Valleyhaven Retirement Community

Re:                  Tentative Agreement Reached - Ratification Meeting

On June 12, 2015 the BCGEU and Valleyhaven Retirement Community reached a tentative agreement in mediation. We believe we were able to achieve the best outcome possible and we are therefore recommending acceptance of the tentative agreement.

A ratification meeting and vote will be held as follows:

  • Date:                         Tuesday, June 23, 2015
  • Time:                         12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Location:      Education Room, Valleyhaven Retirement Community

Highlights of the tentative four year agreement include general wage increases, an increase in the employer paid share of MSP premiums, additional sick time and an increase in vacation entitlement per year after completing three years of employment.

A comprehensive report will be issued to all members at the ratification meeting.

Your bargaining committee and the staff representatives will be present at the meeting to answer any questions you may have. Please make every effort to attend and cast your ballot.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support during this process.

In solidarity,

Wendy Sturm – Committee Chair

Diana Neste – Committee Member

Ashley Oesch – Committee Member

Barbara Crowley – BCGEU Staff Representative, Negotiations

Laura O’Neill – BCGEU Staff Representative, Negotiations
