BC NDP MLAs (Constituency Assistants) Re: Job Action – Work-to-Rule and Overtime Ban - BCGEU

The 72 Hours' Strike Notice expired at 08:30 on Sunday, August 8th, 2021, and your Bargaining Committee advised the employer that job action was launched, effectively immediately.

Job action has commenced with Work-to-Rule and an Overtime ban.

Remember – we are now on strike and have commenced job action. You are only required to do your job exactly as outlined in the collective agreement, with none of those extra duties we are all so used to taking on.

Please see the attached Questions & Answers for further information about the job action.

To help ensure you receive a copy of future updates, please provide a personal email address to the BCGEU at If we already have an email address on file for you and you wish to edit or update any of your existing contact information, you can use the same form. Once your information is updated, we will be able to communicate with you via various platforms, including Hustle and email. 

Your Bargaining Committee will be sending regular updates via personal email. 

Please feel free to contact any member of the Bargaining Committee. We want to hear from you as we make plans to escalate the job action.

In solidarity,

Andrea McDonald, Bargaining Committee Chairperson 
Preet Sangha, Bargaining Committee member
Deanna Fasciani, Bargaining Committee member
Linsay Buss, Staff Representative – Negotiations
