Facilities prepare for bargaining conference November 29

The current 2019-2022 Facilities Collective Agreement expires on March 31, 2022.

To prepare for negotiations for a renewed collective agreement, HEU will hold its 22nd Facilities Bargaining Conference from November 29 to December 1 at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver.

Locals covered by this bargaining agreement elect delegates to attend the conference, where members will debate proposed bargaining demands and elect a bargaining committee for the upcoming round of negotiations.

Local executives, stewards and members should begin discussing and preparing for this important conference now. This will mean scheduling a local meeting before September 29.

If you are interested in becoming a delegate for this conference, ask your local executive for details.

  • Must be elected at a local membership meeting with quorum
  • Must have attended at least 50 per cent of the regular local meetings held in the 12-month period prior to nomination
