  • Acting as a liaison between the worksite, the union local and the BCGEU's area offices.

  • Making sure all co-workers are in the loop by updating the union bulletin board.
  • Referring members to committees on specific issues, such as the Joint Labour Management and Occupational Health and Safety Committees.
