Pacific Blue Cross Annual General Meeting

DECEMBER 13, 2017

The much-awaited and much-anticipated AGM is almost here!  Just two more sleeps and we, CUPE 1816 members – with the invaluable help of CUPE BC and CUPE National – are finally going to have the opportunity to exercise our democratic right to elect a progressive board of directors that respects its own workers (list of these members is attached).

In response to concerns about the holiday season date, the suppertime hour and the downtown location of the AGM, CUPE has arranged for transportation and food.

There will be buses leaving Pacific Blue Cross and the PNE every half hour from 2:30 to 5:00 pm on Wednesday, December 13.  In addition, there will be a CUPE Shuttle running from Waterfront station to the Westin Bayshore for those who choose to take transit.  If you are taking a bus from the PNE, you can park your car for free in Lot 9B (there is a link to the pdf map).

If you choose to carpool to the Westin Bayshore Hotel (1601 Bayshore Drive, Vancouver)  there is paid parking across the street at the Bayshore lot and in the surrounding area.

Registration is from 3-6 pm, at which time the AGM begins. It is imperative that you bring your PBC benefit ID card (the same card used to pick up a prescription, printable at the CARESnet website) and your photo ID when you register.  You will not be allowed to vote if you do not have these items with you.

CUPE BC will be hosting a registration room where you can have something to eat and sign up to win a prize while waiting to attend this important meeting.

The election portion of the meeting should be quite short, and everyone who arrived by bus will be returned to the point of pickup following the conclusion of the meeting.
