Bargaining Bulletins

The Community Bargaining Association (CBA) resumed talks this week in Vancouver exchanging and discussing proposals for four days with the Health Employers Association of British Columbia (HEABC).

The two parties discussed several issues and exchanged proposals on previously tabled demands.  The CBA has now canvassed most of the non-monetary issues, and next week will continue to work to narrow the differences or gain agreement on many issues members have identified as important.

The scheduling subcommittee met this week and will meet with the employer to continue discussions on scheduling for community health workers. 

Community health will continue bargaining next week in Vancouver. Additional dates are set for the next two weeks. 

The Community Bargaining Association represents over 14,000 members, including 1,500 HEU members. The majority of CBA members are represented by the BCGEU. Other unions at the table are UFCW, CUPE, HSA and USWA.
