Written by Dave Chokroun. Posted in Labour Updates, News

On Wednesday, August 9, 5:30 pm, join CUPE BC in showing your support for locked-out CUPE 1816 employees at Pacific Blue Cross, SFU’s extended health provider.

CUPE employees of Pacific Blue Cross have been in bargaining with their employer since last September. Pacific Blue Cross has targeted retiree benefits, extended health care, drug, and vision coverage in bargaining. The employees have been locked out by management since July 7. Last week, Pacific Blue Cross drew criticism for cancelling its Annual General Meeting with plan members.
