Health and Safety Conference – June 2015
OHS Reps: Register now for the Joint Health and Safety Conference
Friday, June 19 & Saturday, June 20
The focus of the conference will be on Occupational Health and Safety Committees and will provide committee members with an opportunity to engage in discussing their successes and challenges and to make recommendations to their unions for action.
The BCGEU Convention is the policy-making body of the union. Once every three years, the union holds a convention of delegates elected from all its locals and affiliates. Convention delegates decide on policies for the union. These are presented and discussed in the form of resolutions submltted by the components, locals and provincial executive. These policies, once adopted by convention, become part of the overall union mandate. CONVENTION THEME: "UNIONS NOW MORE THAN EVER"
The next convention is June 14-17, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Vancouver.

We will be holding our BCGEU Region 2 Women’s Conference, October 17 & 18, at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford in Surrey. The conference is open to all BCGEU women in BCGEU Area 03 and 04 – Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. It's a great opportunity to learn about your union and meet other BCGEU women from your region.
Travel information has been forwarded to delegates via the convention information package mailed out in late April 2014.
