On April 9 and 10, the bargaining committee representing HEU members at four facilities owned by Golden Life Management continued contract renewal talks in Cranbrook.

Over the two days, the parties made progress on the majority of the union’s non-monetary proposals. The bargaining committee also put forward the package of monetary proposals.

More bargaining dates are scheduled for June 16, 17, 18 and 19 in Cranbrook.

Negotiations began in October of last year for the renewal of the 2005–2008 Golden Life/Rocky Mountain Village collective agreement. In that same month, after voting to join HEU, workers at GardenViewVillage in Kimberley and CrestViewVillage in Creston were rolled into the agreement. In February 2008, workers at JosephCreekVillage in Cranbrook also became part of the same agreement.

Bargaining committee members are Kim Dale and Karen Standish from Rocky Mountain Village, Tim Mund and Lena Lenko from Crest View Village, Robyn Hilton from Garden View Village, and Barb Shukin and Nikki Hay from Joseph Creek Village.
