Elect Sister Mary LaPlante to Pacific Blue Cross board at April 26 Annual General Meeting

Pacific Blue Cross, the carrier for HEU's 43,000 facilities sector members' extended health and dental benefits, will hold its annual general meeting (AGM) at the PNE on Wednesday, April 26. HEU members need to turn out in force to elect HEU financial secretary Mary LaPlante, a previous board member of five years, back unto the Pacific Blue Cross board of directors. Elections this year will complete a two-year plan begun in 1999 to downsize the board after the 1997 merger of CU&C and M.S.A. The move toward fewer board members fulfils an agreement made after the merger to bring the boardís size back to a more workable composition. Notice of the annual general meeting needs to be widely circulated and posted throughout locals and work sites. Information is also available on the Pacific Blue Cross web site at: www.pac.bluecross.ca.
