BC Pavilion Corporation - membership ratifies new collective agreement

March 12, 2013

Members of the BC Government and Services Employees’ Union (BCGEU) employed by BC Pavilion Corporation (BC Place) have ratified a new Collective Agreement by 78 %

The new three year agreement expires May 31, 2015 and includes many language changes that will assist the parties. In particular, there will be a new procedure for scheduling Event employees, addition to harassment language; new work coming to the bargaining unit; commitment to eliminate the need for contractors augmenting our Event staff; and an improved expedited arbitration process.

The Union looks forward to our initial meetings with the Employer with respect to the implementation of this new collective agreement.

The Bargaining Committee would like to thank the membership for their continued support throughout the bargaining process.

In solidarity
