BCGEU begins mediated talks in BC Place dispute – picket line to stay up

January 30, 2013

Your bargaining committee met earlier today to discuss next steps.

We’ve agreed to resume bargaining with the help of a mediator beginning at noon today, Wednesday, January 30.

Our picket line at BC Place will remain active until further notice.

We need your help to keep our picket line strong

Any BCGEU member who works at BC Place can picket and collect strike pay – even if you weren’t scheduled to work this week. We’re urging all event staff who haven’t been to the picket line to come down, do a shift and receive strike pay. Report to the picket captain when you arrive.

Please keep watching the BCGEU website ( for updates.
