Conference Details

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 305 are as follows:


Community Living Services: 1 and 1 alternate(s)

General Services: 1 and 1 alternate(s) (Chair Included)

Aboriginal Services: 1 and 1 alternate(s)


Nominations can be submitted by fax (250) 372-1782 or email to Area05@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 September 28, 2017, or in person at the meeting on the same date.




Delegates will be elected at a local meeting. Details are as follows:


Date: September 28, 2017
Time: 6:30 p.m.
(evening entrance at Northwest corner of building)


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.
