Further to our earlier announcement, a tentative agreement has been reached between the BCGEU and BCIT.
A copy of the ratification document is attached here.
Members are encouraged to attend an information session on TUESDAY, June 2nd starting at 1:05 pm. All members are permitted to be released from their duties from 1:00 - 4:00 that day, without loss of pay, to attend this meeting. Your Bargaining Committee will be available to review the settlement agreement we have negotiated with the employer on your behalf and answer any questions you may have. We will also review the process for voting.
When: Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020
Time: 1:05 - 4:00 pm
Dial-in number: 877-229-8493
Please Note: If you have a number on file with the Union, we will call you at that number, starting at 1:05 pm. If you haven’t received a call by 1:10, please call the Dial-in number, noted above. If you do not have a number on file with the BCGEU, you can dial-in yourself at the number noted above.
This meeting will be in the format of a telephone Town Hall, so you can dial-in to hear the presentation and there is a format for asking questions.
The BCGEU is pleased to announce electronic voting for this ratification process. Following the information meeting, you will receive an email on Thursday, June 4th, with a link to vote online and your unique voting credentials. Please participate and vote. This will be the only method for casting your ballot. If you know of another member that doesn’t get credentials to vote because we do not have their email address, please tell them to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline to cast your vote is 12:00 noon on Thursday, June 11, 2020.
Your Bargaining Committee is recommending acceptance of this tentative agreement, so please vote YES.
To help ensure you receive a copy of future updates, please provide a personal email address to the BCGEU at https://my.bcgeu.ca/signup. 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.
