LifeLabs Bargaining Begins!

To:      All BCGEU Members at LifeLabs
Re:      Bargaining Begins!


Your Bargaining Committee is pleased to announce that collective agreement negotiations with your Employer commenced on October 6, 2016.

Talks with the Employer were respectful and productive and a large number of proposals were exchanged. Your committee remains determined that a strong, fair collective agreement is negotiated for all members employed at LifeLabs.

Bargaining is set to resume the first week of December, with multiple dates scheduled. In the meantime, please rest assured that the terms and conditions of your current collective agreement remain in full force and effect until a new agreement has been negotiated and presented to the membership for ratification.

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, please send an email to:

Many thanks for all of your support. Regular updates will be sent out when bargaining resumes.


In solidarity,


Your Bargaining Committee: Patricia Dossett, Teresa Christon, Brad Petruic, Maria Buneta, Janice Morton

Chad McQuarrie, Staff Representative
