Community health limited job action to commence
The Community Bargaining Association (CBA) has reviewed the latest offer from the Health Employers Association of BC (HEABC), and has determined that there’s no reason to return to the bargaining table at this time.
HEABC continues to hold the position that an increase in wages must be accompanied by an offset found within the collective agreement.
Given that there’s been no change in the employer’s position, the CBA has decided to put into force the members’ strike mandate in order to make progress. Limited job action will commence on Wednesday, November 7 and will coincide with a rally in downtown Vancouver.
The Community Bargaining Association represents more than 14,000 workers, including 1,500 HEU members.
