Village Day Care Society - Call for Nominations for Bargaining Committee - BC General Employees' Union (BCGEU)

The Union is now preparing for the upcoming round of collective bargaining. Your current collective agreement with the Employer expired on October 30, 2023. The current collective agreement is in full force and effect while we bargain a new collective agreement.

In preparation for negotiations, a new bargaining committee must be elected to participate in the bargaining process. Nominations are now open for Two (2) Bargaining Committee Members. We need your help and participation to elect: 

  • One (1) Bargaining Committee Member
  • One (1) Alternate Bargaining Committee Member 

The Union provides training to the members of the bargaining committee and the committee members will work directly with the BCGEU Staff Representatives during negotiations.
To be nominated, a member and nominator must complete the nomination form and return it to the BCGEU Lower Mainland office no later than 5:00 pm on Tuesday, January 2, 2024. Nominations received after this time will not be considered. If there are more nominations than positions available, the Union will conduct an election. Nominations are to be returned via facsimile to 604-215-1410, e-mailed or mailed to the office:
