Xyolhemeylh -Conference Calls re: Indigenous Services Benefits - BCGEU

Earlier this week you received information about the level of benefits that could be received without paying any amount for premiums. The reason for this option being presented to you is that a significant majority of you told us that your preference was to preserve or increase your take home pay and reduce the level of benefits. It is your feedback that is guiding this process and nothing else.

Moving to Indigenous Services benefits levels would maximize your take home pay at the certain cost of some benefits. You can't evaluate your interest in that option without knowing the specifics so we provided them to you earlier this week.

Conference calls 1-866-562-0090; access code = 440138#

Tuesday, March 26, NOON – 1PM; 7 – 8 PM

There will be two conference calls to answer your questions about the differences in what you have now and the Indigenous Services benefits. We will then be surveying you for your opinion on whether that's something that interests you. Your responses will be published and transparent and will guide the Benefits Review Committee to the next step in this process of determining what most of you want.

To help ensure you continue to receive important 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,


Your Benefits Review Committee:

Brent Camilleri
Staff Representative - Negotiations

Sandra Postnikoff
Bargaining Committee Member
