Talks resumed this week; rotating strikes continue

Vancouver- The Community Bargaining Association (CBA) met in Vancouver this week, but no progress was made. The CBA and the Health Employers' Association of BC (HEABC) are seeking additional dates.

CUPE members were picketed out today by Community Health workers in Vancouver Coastal Health Authority in Richmond and North Vancouver. The ongoing limited job action in Community Health continues to send a clear message to government that members are standing up for a fair deal.

The CBA has a strong strike mandate backing members’ demands for a fair deal, and they will continue working hard on members’ behalf to ensure a fair and reasonable wage offer for its 14,000 members who have been at the bargaining table since January.

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.
