Attention all Lodge 359 Field Members
It has come to the attention of the Union that further to the July 30th enablement request by the BCA of BC, and the subsequent decision by CIMS Limited Partnership to give notice to the BCA of BC to withdraw from the BCA of BC, we learned late last week that the BCA of BC is now holding a vote to dissolve the BCA of BC, as per a recommendation made by their Board of Directors. Please click here to view the BCA letter. They are holding a special called meeting to discuss and vote on that proposal this Friday, November the 8th.
The Union has since been in contact with many of our BCA contractors over the weekend, and have also sent a letter with our position on this vote and its possible ramifications, which we have attached here for your information, please click here to view the Union letter.
Please be assured that we are continuing to do whatever is necessary to protect the rights of the Union, and of the membership, and will update you again once we have further information on this evolving situation. We want you to know there are actions being taken by the Union, but we do not wish to discuss these in a public forum at this time.
