Esquimalt Drydock Company 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 May 31, 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 three (3) 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:  Friday, May 6, 2016 by 5:00 pm
