Voting for a new enterprise agreement concluded yesterday. An overwhelming number of staff sent a loud and clear message to BCYF executives that any offer that divides members and doesn’t provide for certainty would not be acceptable. 209 staff voted and of those 160 voted no.
ASU today agreed to meet with BCYF executive to discuss the outstanding issues. The meeting will be held on Thursday 11 July.
The offer was divisive, failed to provide certainty around wages and failed to deliver on the benefits that members are seeking.
Members are to be congratulated on their resolve and collective stance to ensure that all members in BCYF receive a fair deal.
Whilst negotiations continue members conditions and entitlements are continued to be covered in their current agreements.
Members will be updated as negotiations progress.
Members and non-members now need to stand together to ensure that any further attempt to erode conditions and entitlements are stopped.
