Tentative agreement reached at BCGEU
November 16, 2021
A tentative agreement has been reached between MoveUP and the BC General Employees’ Union (BCGEU) on a new collective agreement for administrative staff.
The previous collective agreement between MoveUP and the BCGEU expired at the end of March 2021. MoveUP members working at the BCGEU began job action on November 9 by walking off the job for a half-day.
“We are pleased to see we were able to return to the table with the employer and, through mediation, address the critical issues that our members identified and come to an agreement,” said Christy Slusarenko, Vice-President of MoveUP. “Our members wanted to see the employer’s offer respect the work that they do and compensate them fairly for the value they bring to the organization. We feel this agreement does that, and we will be endorsing it to our members and recommending they accept the deal.”
A ratification vote date has not yet been set. In light of a tentative agreement being reached, there will not be any further job action for the time being.
