For the Southern Interior region, Leigha Bonthoux is declared elected by acclamation. Congratulations, Leigha! For the other three regions, elections are required. For the contested regions, a balloting package is being mailed to each member for whom the Union has a current home mailing address. You will receive a ballot for your region only.

Balloting instructions are included in each balloting package. Ballots will be cast using a two-envelope privacy and declaration system. For your ballot to be counted, it must be sealed inside a privacy envelope. That privacy envelope must then be sealed inside a declaration envelope on which you must provide your complete contact information and signature. Please review and carefully follow the balloting instructions to ensure your ballot is not spoiled.

Your ballot must be received by no later than Thursday, May 30, 2019 at 5:00 PM


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

To help ensure you receive bargaining updates, please provide a personal email address to the BCGEU at www.bcgeu.ca/update. If we already have an email address on file for you and you wish to update it or any of your existing contact info, you can use the same form.

In solidarity,

Gary Bennett, Staff Representative - Negotiations
Ryan Stewart, Staff Representative – Negotiations
