HEU launches public sector bargaining tour on February 1

In preparation for public sector bargaining – covering more than 40,000 HEU members in the facilities, community health and community social services sectors – HEU is launching a pre-bargaining tour across the province.

The union is holding a series of evening sessions – beginning February 1 at Sheraton Guildford in Surrey – which are open to HEU’s general membership to set the stage for bargaining and identify priorities.

Over the next two months, several meetings will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and will include a presentation on the context for bargaining, small group discussions, and a Q&A session. Registration begins at 6:00 p.m.

These open sessions are being held in addition to a series of meetings scheduled with local representatives.

For members who are able to come out to an evening meeting, it is a good opportunity to learn about the bargaining process, raise issues, and ask questions.

Members are responsible for their own transportation costs and no wage replacement will be provided.

Please see the attached poster.
