Notice to Bargain
The BCGEU recently gave formal notice to the employer to commence the bargaining process as the current collective agreement term ends on September 30, 2017. 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.
Fill out Your Bargaining Survey – We Want to Hear From You!
This is your opportunity to have a say in the terms and conditions in your collective agreement. It is very important that every BCGEU member fill out the attached bargaining survey, because your bargaining committee will establish its negotiation priorities based on the survey results. Please ensure you submit it before the deadline.
If you want to take a look at your collective agreement before you fill out your bargaining survey, you will find a copy here: http://www.bcgeu.ca/sites/default/files/collective-agreements/Destination-Cinema-IMAX-to-2014.pdf
Deadline for Bargaining Committee Nomination Forms: Wednesday September 13, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.
Deadline for Bargaining Surveys: Wednesday September 20, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.
For both forms, please scan and email to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to the attention of Earl Moloney at 250-384-8060. Late forms will not be accepted!
Make sure you give the Union your home email address and cell phone number to ensure you are kept informed about what is going on with bargaining. We can get information to you much faster by email. Please send your contact information to email@example.com. We look forward to hearing back from you all!
