PEA Will Issue 72-Hour Strike Notice at Noon Today

Dear GLP members,

The PEA will be issuing 72-hour strike notice to the employer at noon today. Under the BC Labour Relations Code, the union must issue strike notice before any strike action can begin.

You will be notified in advance of when strike action will be taking place at your worksite. For now, all members should report for work as usual.

At the beginning of bargaining, your union leadership made the strategic decision to time our bargaining so that if needed we could be on strike with the BCGEU and not just behind their picket lines. This notice gives us the power to strike effectively, united for future action in coordination with the BCGEU.

Actions You Can Take Now

  • Support the BCGEU picket lines
    All GLP members are encouraged to support BCGEU picket lines, if there is one in your area, during non-work hours. Our support is an important message of solidarity as the BCGEU’s job action will greatly influence all public sector bargaining. Share your thanks with the BCGEU members in your workplace for leading the strike action and putting their members on the picket lines to help achieve COLA for everyone.
  • Show solidarity
    You can also show solidarity by wearing your COLA button, displaying your tent card in your workplace area, updating your TEAMS or ZOOM with the COLA background or visiting the PEA social media Facebook and Twitter pages to share videos and posts. Help us get this video to over 200,000 views!
  • Stay informed
    Sign up for texts regarding job action from the PEA or other unions. Text the word GLP to +778 402 7862

Frequently asked questions regarding job action and picket lines are posted on the Job Action Resource page of the PEA website.

In solidarity,

GLP Executive and GLP Bargaining Committee
