Hello BCGEU Members,
The union has been made aware of the critical incident that occurred at Raincity Jubilee on Friday, November 12. We are currently working with your elected leaders and stewards to ensure a proper investigation, risk assessment and follow up happens from Raincity Housing and Support Society.
While that process is ongoing, our immediate concern is the health, safety and wellbeing of any members who have been impacted by the events of Friday night. If you need mental health supports, there are several options available to you through your collective agreement and WorkSafeBC.
Your collective agreement provides counselling services through the Employee Assistance and Wellness program:
