Community Living BC - Election of bargaining committee members - BCGEU

You have elected your Bargaining Committee Chair, Linda Atamanik. The next step is to elect the three Bargaining Committee Members. You will recall from the January 22 bulletin the structure of the Bargaining Committee:

The Bargaining Committee has four positions, as follows:

One – Bargaining Committee Chair
Three – Bargaining Committee Members

The bargaining committee must have representation from one Admin employee and three employees from other occupations such as Facilitator, Analyst, IT or work at PAC. The exact number of "Bargaining Committee Member" positions in each occupational group will depend on what occupation is elected in the Chair role.

As one Admin employee must be elected and the Chair is not an Admin employee, an election must be held for that one position and another election for the remaining two non-Admin employee positions. For that reason your balloting package will contain two ballots. Blair Davies has been confirmed by the Labour Management Committee as being part of the Admin occupational group.

Candidates for the position of Admin Employee Bargaining Unit Member (yellow ballot):

Blair Davies

Nancy Bell

Candidates for the position of Non-Admin Employee Bargaining Unit Member (blue ballot):

Brenda Gordon

Tory Kincross

Lillian Tugwell

Jozef Pisko-Dubienski


Balloting packages are being mailed to all members for whom the Union has a current mailing address.

Balloting instructions are enclosed on a separate page. Please follow them carefully and be sure to fill out the information on the declaration ballot and include your signature.

Your ballot must be received no later than Friday, March 29, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.

The information on your declaration ballot will be used to establish that you are a valid voter. Then the coin envelopes will be removed from the declaration ballots. Only when all coin envelopes have been removed will they be opened and counted.  This is to ensure that your vote remains confidential and no one can tell how you voted. 

If you do not receive a ballot through the mail, this likely means that we do not have your mailing address on file. In situations like this, you will need to contact your BCGEU area office to obtain a ballot.

To help ensure you receive a copy of bargaining updates please provide a personal email address to the BCGEU at http://www.bcgeu.ca/update. 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.

In solidarity
