Hospitality Industrial Relations - Call for Nominations for Bargaining Committee - BCGEU

To: All BCGEU Members of Hospitality Industrial Relations (Best Western Kings Inn and the Crest Hotel)

Re: Call for Nominations for Bargaining Committee


In the next upcoming months, your collective agreement will expire. With that in mind, it is now time for members working at the Best Western Kings Inn and the Crest Hotel to nominate candidates to represent your respective worksites as part of your new BCGEU bargaining committee.

  • Bargaining Committee Member, two positions available
  • Best western Kings Inn – one position
  • The Crest Hotel – one position

You can nominate, or accept nomination, only for the bargaining committee position available at your worksite.

If only one candidate is nominated at a particular jobsite, an election will not be necessary. In the event that more than one candidate is nominated at a particular jobsite, an election will be held and only employees working at that jobsite will be able to cast ballots in that election. The candidate with the most votes will be elected. 

In order to be nominated, a member and nominator must complete the attached nomination form and return by 5:00 pm on Monday, March 19, 2018.

Each candidate who is nominated may complete, and send back with their nomination form, a campaign bulletin or information sheet on ONE 8.5" x 11" page which the Union will distribute to the membership, with the ballots and post to the website in the event of an election. Any other campaign material used by any candidate is their responsibility.

Please note that the information sheet should accompany the nomination form and the nomination forms must be signed. Please read and follow the instructions carefully.

Please fax or email your completed nomination forms to Chad McQuarrie as per below:

Facsimile: 604-294-5092

Thank you for your participation in this important process. Details of the election procedure will be distributed after the nomination period closes.

In solidarity,

Chad McQuarrie, Staff Representative Negotiations
