Technical Safety BC (BC Safety Authority) Bargaining Commences - BCGEU

The Employer and your union bargaining committee met on Friday to exchange proposals and initiate bargaining discussions. All union and employer proposals are now on the table except for wages and term which will be tabled at a later date. We are going to deal with non-monetary proposals first and monetary later.

Following the tabling of proposals, the Employer sought some time to review the union's proposals. It is very early in the bargaining process. We are scheduled to return to the table with the Employer on April 3rd and 4th. Our union bargaining committee will meet on the 5th to caucus.

If you want more details about what's happening with bargaining, please speak with one of your union bargaining committee members. Don't buy into the rumour mill.
