Provincial Bargaining Conference Postponed
Based on the unprecedented transmissibility of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 and the devastating impact it is having on staffing levels across the province, BCNU Council has decided to postpone the provincial bargaining conference to the fall, 2022.
The decision to postpone the provincial bargaining conference will not impact the union's negotiating position in any way. All regional bargaining conferences will continue as planned to ensure union business is not otherwise impacted.
In coming to this decision, BCNU Council is putting the needs of our members first. BCNU members are forced to work short and have been working under immense pressure and instability during the course of the pandemic. Ensuring the physical and psychological health of BCNU members in the short term with this postponement will allow for a more focused provincial bargaining conference in the fall.
Please reach out to your regional council member if you have any further questions.
