Community social services: employer asks unions to remove monetary proposals

This week, the Community Social Services Employers Association requested that the unions rescind all monetary proposals. The unions have not yet responded to this request. The employers are still insisting on the provincial governments ‘zero financial mandate. Both sides are scheduled to meet seven more days through the end of the month.

The union bargaining committee remains committed to achieving meaningful gains as mandated by our members. Josef Rieder represents HSA at the bargaining table, with HSA bargaining team chair Lynn Kelsey.

Members can register on HSAs website for bargaining updates by email. Check updates on this website, under News > Bulletins > Community Social Services.

The Community Social Services Bargaining Association bargains on behalf of 15,000 unionized community-based social services workers in BC, including 800 HSA members. The BCGEU is the lead union at the table.
