Election Of Bargaining Committee Chair - BCGEU

The first step in the election process is to determine who will be elected to the position of Bargaining Committee Chair. Four members have accepted nomination for this position, they are as follows (in random order), 

Nominated for the position of Bargaining Unit Chair


·         Blair Davies

·         Tory Kincross

·        Linda Atamanik

·         Lillian Tugwell


BCGEU members employed at CLBC will receive a ballot package specific to the position of Bargaining Committee Chair. After the Chair has been selected, the election for the Bargaining Committee Members will proceed.

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 Thursday, February 14, 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 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.

Once a Bargaining Unit Chair has been elected, another election will take place to determine the four members who will sit with the Chair on the committee. Full details of that election will be forthcoming.
