BURNABY—In preparation for bargaining 2010, CUPE has launched a short survey asking members who work in community social services in B.C. about bargaining issues.
The survey, which has been developed through CUPE’s CSS Presidents’ Council, follows on the February 2009 bargaining conference which brought together CUPE members from all sectors and regions across the province.
CUPE’s CSS Presidents’ Council is encouraging members to fill in the survey. “Our Collective Agreement expires on March 31, 2010 and CUPE is seeking a freely negotiated settlement that addresses the priorities of our members. In preparation, our bargaining committee needs members’ input,” says Cheryl Colborne, CUPE’s Community Social Services sector coordinator.
The survey, which takes about ten minutes to complete, uses an on-line format. It will remain open until September 8, 2009.
Members can access it from the link below or go to CUPE’s Community Social Services sector page.
All responses will be confidential and will not be shared with employers or other union members. For members who want to fill out a paper or hardcopy version, these are available from your shop steward and/or Local representative.
