Strike Vote Scheduled for The Royale Pacifica Resort Retirement Living - BCGEU

The Union has now explored the options open to us to achieve a fair and reasonable renewal collective agreement to bring back for you to vote on and has determined that a strong strike mandate is required. The Employer is unwilling to offer wage increases beyond 0.75% per year and this is unacceptable to your bargaining committee.

A drop-in style meeting has been scheduled for you to come and vote.

Date:          Tuesday, January 30, 2018

Location:    Ricky's Country Restaurant

                   2160 King George Boulevard, Surrey, BC

Time:          7:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Members of the Bargaining Committee and BCGEU staff representatives will be available at the drop in meeting to provide information and answer questions. 

Voting will only take place at the meeting.

Every vote counts so please make the time to come out to ask any questions you may have, get a full explanation of what the issues are and cast your ballot!

Your bargaining committee is asking for your support and recommending a yes vote.
