Members of the Community Health Services and Support sector vote in favour of job action

VANCOUVER—Members of the Community Bargaining Association (CBA) voted 86 per cent in favour of job action after more than six months of negotiations.

“We are very pleased that our members have given us a strong strike mandate, and we will be asking the HEABC (Health Employers’ Association of British Columbia) to return to the bargaining table on October 9th,” says Pat Taylor, one of CUPE's representatives at the bargaining table. “If HEABC doesn’t move on its proposals, we’ll be forced to consider job action.”

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.
