ABSBC Repatriation to BC Hydro - Union Meetings - revised

Friday, March 3, 2017
To: All MoveUP members at BC Hydro and ABSBC

Executive Councillors, Job Stewards and Distributors, please post and distribute

With reference to staying as long as you would like, please be advised your attendance is meant to be on your breaks, lunch or before or after work.

As per yesterday’s bulletin, we’ve booked a series of meetings in your worksites to talk with as many members as possible about the repatriation of ABSBC work and employees back to BC Hydro. We will be holding ten drop-in meetings between March 8 and March 16, and all meetings are open to BC Hydro and ABSBC employees.

We’re eager to talk with you about why we believe this is the right move for our members at BC Hydro and ABSBC, and for the overall health and stability of the company. We’ve negotiated the best possible repatriation for our members at BC Hydro and ABSBC, and are glad to see the utility made whole. We firmly believe this is the best outcome for our members and their careers, as well as BC Hydro’s customers.

We look forward to seeing you at one of the drop-in meetings below. Most meetings will be rolling drop-in meetings so we can catch as many shifts as possible. You’re welcome to stay as for as long or as short as you like.
