TALKS BREAK DOWN
Following two intense days of negotiations on September 23rd & 24th, your Bargaining Committee regrets to inform you that we have been unable to reach a settlement. Although many local issues and non-monetary proposals have been resolved, the major concerns and monetary proposals remain unresolved at this time.
Your Bargaining Committee would like to thank the membership for their excellent turn-out at our recent meetings. It is your input and feedback we rely on to guide our actions and we have determined that the employer's offer will not meet our mandate from you.
Over the next few days, your Bargaining Committee will be making the necessary arrangements to schedule additional meetings with you. Please stay tuned for further information and a schedule of meetings.
Please ensure you receive a copy of bargaining updates by providing a personal email address to the BCGEU at: http://www.bcgeu.ca/change-address.
