HCN-Revera Lessee (Sunwood) - Bargaining Bulletin #4: Talks to Resume While Strike Prep Gets Underway - BC General Employees' Union (BCGEU)

Talks to Resume

Your bargaining committee has informed Revera of the strong strike mandate you provided to support your demands for fair wages, benefits, vacation, paid holidays and other monetary and non-monetary conditions of employment. The parties are scheduled to return to the bargaining table on Thursday, January 20th. Your bargaining committee will urge Revera to reach a fair and reasonable negotiated settlement-preferably without having to resort to a work stoppage.

Strike Prep Gets Underway

If Revera remains unconvinced that you deserve the same as other Revera employees in the region doing the same work, the SCC will be responsible for planning and coordinating your strike action. More information will follow.

You can expect to receive another bulletin sometime next week with details of a Zoom-based membership meeting to be held before the next bargaining session on January 20th. In the meantime, please reach out to a worksite member of your bargaining committee if you have any questions or concerns.


In solidarity,

Your bargaining committee:
