BC Government looking for feedback on Sexual Harassment policies at Universities in BC

The local has heard time and time again about how UNBC didn’t seem to take into consideration the concerns of the staff in the drafting of the Sexual Harassment Policy and that it seems rather student focused. The government is now looking for feedback concerning the policies in place across the province. Please feel free to provide a comment.



New Chief Shop Steward and Steward for our local 3799

Joyce Henley has stepped forward to fill the long vacant Chief Shop Steward position. As she was our Recording Secretary and as per our bylaws a person can not hold two executive positions, the position of Recording Secretary is now open. A formal call for nominations for the position will be coming out shortly.

We welcome Joyce in this role. With her CUPE training combined with personal education it will ensure she has a successful time as our Chief Shop Steward.

Mike Billips Wood Engineering Technologist at the WIDC has been sworn in as a steward. Even though he typically works at the WIDC there can be arrangements for him to be on campus and of course we do have telephones :)

Their contact information can be found on the contact page
