FROM THE BULLETIN BOARD

Every year, representatives from the BC Building Trades, the labour movement, WorkSafeBC, the business community, and local leaders join family members and the public to mark the deaths of the four construction workers who died in the Bentall Tower tragedy. The memorial is an opportunity to remember the men who are so deeply missed, and to renew the call for stronger safety measures in high-risk industries such as construction, manufacturing, and natural resources.

Once again, the Bentall Memorial will be virtual. We encourage you to attend the event and to watch this video, ‘Bentall Memorial Tribute to Four Carpenters’, which was produced by the Labour Heritage Centre.

Release of Government’s Bargaining Mandate Delayed - CEU Bargaining Survey Still to Come

You might be wondering when the CEU will be distributing the CEU Bargaining Survey to all Members.

The short answer is – you will not be receiving the Survey until such time as CEU understands the Government’s bargaining mandate for 2022. It is unusual not to know the mandate by November in the year prior to a bargaining year; however, given Covid-19 and ongoing floods, these are not typical times.  Once PSEC announces the bargaining mandate, we will inform the Membership and distribute the Survey, as is historical practice.  Please take your time to respond to the CEU Bargaining Survey, as it is your direct opportunity to send CEU your Collective Agreement feedback and to communicate your bargaining priorities.

Again, we will provide you with more information regarding 2022 bargaining and the timing of the CEU Bargaining Survey as news is released.

A Message From Our President

Employer Implements Mandatory Vaccination of CEU Members

Dear Members,

The Employer announced  that it is introducing a policy of mandatory double vaccination for all employees/contractors who, through the course of their work, meet/engage with injured workers and other members of the public in person.  The new Employer policy also requires WCB employees and contractors who enter any of the WCB offices to be double vaccinated.  The policy states that these affected employees must be double vaccinated by November 1st, 2021.

In response to the Employer’s announcement, CEU Executive and Staff held a lengthy emergency meeting on Tuesday to discuss the Employer’s policy and the likely effects on our diverse Membership.
