Valleyhaven Retirement Community Ltd. Bargaining Update – Essential Services Negotiations - BCGEU

The Employer and the Union met yesterday to negotiate essential service levels for Valleyhaven, in the event of strike action. The parties were unable to reach agreement, and we will now apply to the Labour Relations Board for the assistance of a mediator.

Previously scheduled dates for mediation at the LRB will go ahead on June 4th and 11th.

Your bargaining committee remains focused on negotiating a fair and reasonable settlement, but we are preparing for job action should the mediation at the LRB fail.

To help ensure you receive a copy of bargaining updates, please provide a personal email address to the BCGEU at http://www.bcgeu.ca/update. 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.

In solidarity,

Ashley Oesch – Bargaining Committee Chair
Pamela Conroy – Bargaining Committee Member
Tina Vallier – Bargaining Committee Member
Linsay Buss – BCGEU Staff Representative, Negotiations
