VANCOUVER—Community Health bargaining will pause for the holiday season, but is scheduled to resume January 7, 2013.
“When we return to the table in the new year, we are looking for the employer to bring a solid offer to the table that meets the needs of the Community Bargaining Association,” says Jill Stromnes, CUPE bargaining committee member. “Community health workers have been without a contract for over ten months now – it’s time for a fair deal.”
CUPE represents approximately 500 members in the CBA which has over 14,000 members, the majority of whom are represented by the BCGEU. Other Unions at the table are UFCW, HEU, HSA, and USWA.
