A message from the President on the passing of Joe Gange

August 11, 2006

On behalf of the members of the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union, and particularly those employed in highways maintenance, I wanted to offer our deepest condolences with the passing of Joe Gange.

The BCGEU had an opportunity to honour Joe’s commitment to workers and his contribution to the BCGEU when our convention delegates bestowed him with life membership in the BCGEU in 1989.

This membership recognition reflected the years of support that Joe provided highways maintenance members as a Steward, Local Chairperson and Component Chairperson.

Joe’s tenacious spirit left an impression on members, employers and our Union. Our condolences go out to his family and to those whose life was made a little better because of Joe.

In Solidarity and Respect

George Heyman, President
