BC Business Services Society (Small Business BC) - Collective Bargaining Meeting – nomination / election of bargaining committee - BCGEU

Your collective agreement is expiring on March 31, 2021, and I am the BCGEU Staff Representative that will be working with your bargaining committee to negotiate a new one.

The first step is to elect the bargaining committee. Please note –traditionally the CBCBSS (Small Business BC) bargaining committee has been composed of 2 members although your Local 1703 bylaws note that a bargaining committee may be composed of up to 3 union members.

Nominations are now open for bargaining committee members. As per local 1703 bylaws, we are holding a meeting on February 8 to accept and review nominations. If there are more nominations than positions available, the union will conduct an election. If an election is required, all members at BCBCSS will receive an electronic ballot to participate in the election. A non-work email address is required to ensure you receive your ballot (many employer email systems have firewalls which will prevent an electronic ballot from reaching your Inbox).
