Nanaimo Seniors Village election of bargaining committee and bargaining survey

Notice to Bargain

The BCGEU recently gave formal notice to the employer to commence the bargaining process, because the current collective agreement expires on July 19, 2016.  Of course your collective agreement remains in full force and effect until a new agreement is negotiated and presented to you for a ratification vote.

Elect your Bargaining Committee

There are three (3) positions for the BCGEU Bargaining Committee available. Nominate who you think would be your best representatives for bargaining, or, if you are interested in serving on the Committee, have a co-worker nominate you .  Please ensure the attached nomination form is signed by both the nominee and the nominator, and submitted by the deadline noted below.  If there are more nominees than positions, then an election will be held.  The Bargaining Committee Chairperson will be elected at a future membership meeting.

Fill out Your Bargaining Survey – We Want to Hear From You!

This is your opportunity to have a say in the terms and conditions in your collective agreement.  It is really important that every BCGEU member fill out the attached bargaining survey because this allows your Bargaining Committee to develop its bargaining priorities.  Please take the time to fill out the survey, so the Bargaining Committee knows what is most important to you.

Deadline for Bargaining Committee Nomination Forms:  Thursday July 21, 2016

Deadline for Bargaining Surveys:  Monday August 1, 2016

For both forms, please scan and email to, or fax to the attention of Chad McQuarrie at 604 294-5092, or mail them in to 4911 Canada Way, Burnaby British Columbia, V5G 3W3.

Please go to our website at to update your contact information so we can keep you informed about what is going on with bargaining.

We look forward to hearing back from you all!

In solidarity

Chad McQuarrie
