Community Living BC ratification results

February 3, 2015

BCGEU members have ratified the 2014-2019 Community Living BC Collective Agreement.

Ninety three percent of the bargaining unit voted in favour of accepting the agreement.

The five-year deal expires March 31, 2019. More than 500 BCGEU members work for the CLBC.

The agreement follows the pattern of public sector wage settlements of 5.5 per cent over the life of the contract. Other gains include:

  • Increases to paramedical coverage over the term of the agreement; 
  • The Memorandum on Employment Security renewed;
  • Improved job selection and appeal processes;
  • Increases to expense allowances;
  • An innovative Collaboration Agreement that gives the bargaining unit members meaningful input on CLBC's strategic and operational planning processes.

Thanks to all the stewards who collected ballots and sent them in for counting. 

Your Bargaining Committee,

Charles Partridge, Chairperson
Jon Bartel, Member
Maureen Brady, Member
Debra McCormick, Member
