All BCGEU members at Emcon Services (Service Area 09) Bargaining Update

December 6, 2006

Your Bargaining Committee met in late November to develop proposals in anticipation of collective bargaining. There were a substantial amount of proposal forms returned and the committee is very pleased with the level of input from the membership.

We still have some work to complete prior to getting to the bargaining table. The committee is scheduled to meet one more time on January 12, 2007.

We are currently seeking bargaining dates into the new year and ask for your support and continued patience while the bargaining process develops.

In solidarity

Mike Prystae, Bargaining Committee Chairperson
Wade Wheaton, Bargaining Committee Member
Fred Planidin, Bargaining Committee Member
Gary Bennett, Staff Representative
