In preparation for sectoral agreements contract expiry in 2019, the BCGEU is holding a Community Social Services Sectoral Bargaining Conference.
Community Social Services Sectoral Bargaining Conference
November 6th and 7th, 2017
Pacific Gateway Hotel at Vancouver Airport
3500 Cessna Drive, Richmond
The Union will provide leave to attend the conference, make arrangements for necessary travel and accommodations, as well as cover meals and child care.
The number of delegates are determined by collective agreement in each local for sectoral and geographic representation. Local Chairs are delegates to the bargaining conference by right, so in some areas the call is for an alternate only in the event that a local chair cannot attend.
Members who are nominated to be a delegate must be available to attend both dates, and work under one of the sectoral agreements.
Call for nominations for delegates in Local 302 are as follows:
Community Living Services: 1 and 1 alternate(s) (Chair Included)
General Services: 1 and 1 alternate
Nominations can be submitted by fax 1-800-946-0247 or email to Area02@bcgeu.ca or in person at a local meeting.
Deadline to submit nominations by fax or email no later than 5:00 p.m. on Oct 3, 2017, or in person at the meeting on the same date.
Delegates will be elected at a local meeting. Details are as follows:
Date: Tuesday, October 3, 2017
Time: 4:30 pm Executive Meeting
5:00 pm General Meeting
Location: 106-1650 Terminal Ave. N., Nanaimo (BCGEU Area 02 Office)
Delegates may submit a short bio of no more than 250 words to be presented at the meeting prior to the election. Members will only vote for the delegate(s) nominated to represent their sectoral agreement.
The Community Social Services Sectoral Bargaining Committee members will be elected from the delegates at the conference.
