VICTORIA – CUPE 374 welcomed 9 new members from BC Healthy Communities Society (BCHC) following a Labour Board representation vote that was certified on February 24. This new group of members includes planners, public health specialists and community engagement practitioners who help communities make planning decisions from a public health vantage point and through an equity lens.
“CUPE 374 is really pleased to welcome these workers who provide important community services at BCHC,” said CUPE 374 President Shireen Clark who notes that they will be a good fit as the local also represents two other community services groups. “We look forward to working with our newest members as they secure a first collective agreement and ensure a fair workplace.”
CUPE 374 now represents over 1000 municipal workers in 7 different municipalities and 3 community services groups throughout the Victoria region. BCHC is a not-for-profit agency that provides support, expertise and resources for health authorities, local governments and other key stakeholders in communities throughout B.C.COPE 491
