Taking Action For Your Safety On The Picket Line - BCGEU

Dear Comox Valley Seniors Village including Casa Loma members, 

Today I received reports that members working at Comox Valley Seniors Village or Casa Loma were threatened on the picket line. I want you to know that your safety is of paramount importance to your union as you fight for fairness in the workplace.
In order to ensure your safety, I am now working closely with the director of negotiations, the regional coordinator, and the staff representative assigned to provide whatever additional support you need to stay safe.
There is safety in numbers, so we are reaching out to BCGEU members in the area to mobilize additional support on the line. As well, picket captains will review safety protocols with all members on the picket line. Please continue to report any problems to your picket captains and follow all safety protocols.
Be assured, your union has your back on this and we'll be watching the situation closely to ensure your safety.
In solidarity,

Stephanie Smith
BCGEU president
