Election Results for Bargaining Committee Chairperson

The ballots have now been counted and elected as Bargaining Committee Chairperson is: Doreen Aquino

Thank you to the other candidates for their participation in this important election. The election for the remaining members of the Bargaining Committee will commence immediately.


Election for Bargaining Committee Members 

Balloting is now underway for the position of Member, Bargaining Committee (two positions). Four candidates are nominated:

• Geoffery Harder

• Kevin Asher

• Liam Phipps

• Virgil Colley

**Biographies submitted by each candidate are enclosed.

Balloting packages are being mailed to all members for whom the Union has current mailing addresses.

Mark your ballot clearly for two candidates and place it inside the small brown coin envelope. Any ballot with more than two members selected will be considered to be spoiled and not counted. Place the coin envelope in the declaration ballot envelope and seal it. Fill out the information on the declaration ballot envelope, including your signature and return it to the Union in the enclosed self-addressed postage paid envelope.

Your ballot must be received no later than Wednesday, February 6th, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.

Once a person has been confirmed as a member of the Union, the coin envelopes will be removed from the declaration ballots. Only when all coin envelopes have been removed will they be opened and counted. This is to ensure that your vote remains confidential and no one can tell how you voted.

If you do not receive a ballot through the mail, this likely means that we do not have your mailing address on file. In situations like this, you will need to contact your BCGEU area office to obtain a ballot. 

To help ensure you receive a ballot and a copy of bargaining updates, please provide a personal email address to the BCGEU at http://www.bcgeu.ca/update. If we already have an email address on file for you and you wish to edit or update any of your existing contact information, you can use the same form.

Thank you for your participation in this important election.


In solidarity,

Linsay Buss, Staff Representative, Negotiations
