Mediated bargaining with BC Place (BC Pavilion Corporation) is continuing

February 3, 2013

The BCGEU and BC Pavilion Corporation will resume bargaining with the assistance of mediator John Hall on Wednesday, February 13, 2013.

This follows five (5) very long days of mediation. The parties have put in a tremendous effort and have been able to come to agreement on all non-monetary changes to the collective agreement.

Now that the language changes that will form part of the framework for a renewed collective agreement is complete, the focus of the group will turn to the monetary items.

The BCGEU is satisfied that we are making headway at the bargaining table, and as sign of goodwill, the BCGEU has agreed that there will be no job action, and it will be business as usual at the stadium.

As the parties are still in mediation, no details will be provided.

Please keep watching the BCGEU website for updates.
