K-12 bargaining survey deadline: April 16

BURNABY—Members in CUPE’s K-12 sector are participating in a bargaining survey to determine their priorities in preparation for the next round of bargaining.

“The K-12 Presidents’ Council encourages all our locals to continue reminding their members to have their say by completing the bargaining survey before April 16,” said K-12 Presidents’ Council Chair Marcel Marsolais. “It’s extremely important for the bargaining committee that the majority of K-12 education support staff participate in the survey so that we can achieve the best collective agreement possible.”

The survey, which takes about 20 minutes to complete, is confidential and will not be shared with the employer or any other union members. An online and a paper version are available to members. Only one response is permitted per member.

Members who have not received either a link to the digital survey or a copy of the paper version are encouraged to contact their local immediately. The paper surveys must be returned to either the local union office or mailed to CUPE’s B.C. regional office by Friday, April 16. Mail your completed survey to:

Survey questions were based on concerns and issues identified by K-12 locals along with research findings from previous surveys. The provincial Collective Agreement for the K-12 sector expires on June 30th, 2019.
