Election of Bargaining Committee for Victoria Native Friendship Centre Members

To:    BCGEU Members working at Victoria Native Friendship Centre
Re:    Election of Bargaining Committee


Notice to Bargain

The BCGEU recently gave formal notice to the employer to commence the bargaining process because the current collective agreement term ends on October 1, 2016.  Of course your collective agreement remains in full force and effect until a new agreement is negotiated and brought to all of you to vote on and ratify.

Elect your Bargaining Committee

There are two (2) positions for the BCGEU Bargaining Committee available. Nominate who you think would be your best representatives for bargaining.  Please find the Bargaining Committee Nomination form attached to this bulletin.  If you are interested in being on the Bargaining Committee, just have a co-worker (BCGEU member) sign it to nominate you and then you must also sign it to accept their nomination and ensure the form is fully completed and submitted by the deadline noted below.  If there are more nominees than positions, then an election will be held.

If you want to take a look at your collective agreement before you fill out a nomination form, you will find a copy on the BCGEU website (  

Deadline for Bargaining Committee Nomination Forms:  Monday, October 31, 2016 by 5:00 pm

You may scan and email the form to [email protected]  or fax to the attention of Cheryl Jones at 250-384-8060.  Late forms will not be accepted!


In solidarity

BCGEU Staff Representative
