If you wish to attend by zoom, please contact Tricia Tringham at [email protected] and the meeting zoom link will be sent to you.

At this meeting we will be catching up on what has been happening in our local area at different worksites and with different employers. If you have any questions or concerns about things in your worksite, please bring them along.

At this Townhall we will also be working on writing resolutions to bring forward to the BCGEU triennial convention in early June. Resolutions are written submission that propose could propose changes, advocacy ideas, internal projects to pursue and many more options on how we the workers, want to direct out union.

The Convention is a gathering of elected delegates from across the province where resolutions are passed to direct the union over the next three years. Convention is also the place where we elect our Executive Vice Presidents, Treasurer and President.  Resolutions are a great way to bring forward changes we would like our union to make and campaigns to take forward. Resolution writing is one of the best ways to get active in our union.


  • Welcomes and introductions.
  • Resolution writing and sharing.
  • Open period for questions and sharing of news and wins.

Snacks and drinks will be provided for the in person portion!
