Component 4 - Facilities Bargaining committee - BCGEU

The Facilities Bargaining Association (FBA) bargains the collective agreement and has asked all member unions to forward all bargaining proposals to the FBA by May 14th. The FBA is a council of all the unions who represent employees in the Facilities Health Sub-Sector. In response to this request, the BCGEU has conducted bargaining committee elections, sent out bargaining surveys to all our members and scheduled a bargaining conference. 

Since the last round of bargaining, the BCGEU has become a larger part of the FBA and will be sending additional bargaining committee members to the table to reflect our proportionally greater membership numbers. This round the BCGEU will have six elected bargaining committee members and the BCGEU Staff negotiator at the table compared to 3 elected members in the past. 

Your BCGEU Facilities Bargaining Committee has been elected from the 9 nominees as follows:

1. Deborah Wagner
2. Richard Zieiansk
3. Christine Fuller
4. Joel Blanco
5. Tracey Payne
6. Mahen Ramdary

Your Facilities Bargaining Committee will be meeting to discuss the bargaining surveys, participate in the bargaining conference and develop proposals that meet your needs and wants before the mid-May deadline.
