Re: Information Meetings and Ratification Vote


As you may already be aware, the Union and your Negotiating Committee reached a Memorandum of Agreement with your employer on Tuesday, January 30th.  Please be advised, in lieu of the regularly scheduled Victoria area meetings a series of two meetings have been scheduled to communicate the package and to answer any questions and/or concerns you may have. In addition, a ratification vote will take place at the close of each meeting.  Ballots will be counted on Friday, February 16 at the close of the final meeting in New Westminster. The series of meetings and ratification votes are as follows:


                                      Date:               Wednesday, February 14, 2024


                        Times:             11:00 A.M. & 5:00 P.M.


If you are unable to attend one of the meetings, shown above, please contact the Union office and speak with a Union Representative to discuss and answer any questions you may have about the Memorandum of Agreement and to make alternate arrangements to collect your vote.


Memorandums will be mailed to each member over the next week in advance of the meetings.


Please make every effort to participate in this very important process.

Past Meetings


"I was there when we brought the Union in. The first-time contract they won for us was unbelievable. It changed the quality of my life. I am now a Shop Steward and enjoy working with my Union and looking after my fellow workers. "

- Paul Landrecht - Shop Steward. Island Farms Dairy.

“I look after a lot of members in a very big plant. For years I had to fight for them by myself with no help at all from any of the Union’s representatives or Officers. This changed completely once Bobby, Bob and Paul were in office. Now I have access to my reps 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!  They’re always there to back me up.” 

- Darrell Lawres – Chief Shop Steward. Saputo, Sperling
