Union activists from across the province gathered in Surrey BC this week to discuss important issues for Component 1 members.
We reviewed grievance arbitration, short term illness and injury plan (STIIP) and long term disability (LTD) issues, gangs and threats, pensions and more.
We also were updated on the progress of sheriff retention and recruitment efforts. Attorney General David Eby sent a video message of support to the conference, citing retention and wages as key issues which need to be addressed. Watch Minister Eby's remarks here.
Additionally, Component 1 has added a deputy sheriff specific position to the component executive to enhance sheriff representation in our union. The first deputy sheriff representative is Mike Redlick from local 102 Nanaimo sheriffs, and the alternate is David Davidson from local 105 Kamloops sheriffs.
