As per the Health Care Presidents’ Council Protocol Agreement, a bargaining convention will be held on October 6, 2021. This will occur in-person at the Inn at the Quay, 900 Quayside Drive, New Westminster. This convention is held for the purpose of electing representatives for each of the Association’s Negotiating Committees and to ratify proposals for submission to these committees.

This is an excellent opportunity to work collaboratively toward a plan of action that builds solidarity internally and with other unions. Our work together will develop a strategy to provide the best chance possible to achieve important victories for members in the next round of bargaining.

I would like to give you the opportunity, as per our bylaws, to have a member nominate you to attend our Health Care Presidents’ Bargaining Convention which will subsequently allow you the opportunity of being elected to the associated health sector union’s provincial negotiating committee. The Health Care Presidents’ Protocol Agreement allows CUPE 15 to have ten of our health sector members attend the convention at which time two bargaining representatives and one alternate for HSPBA bargaining, and two bargaining representatives and one alternate for HSSCBA bargaining will be elected to the Association Bargaining Committee.

Nominations will be received and voted on at our General Membership meeting on September 22, 2021 using the Zoom platform. You will be sent an invitation by email if the union office has a personal email address on file for you. Details will also be posted at If you do not receive emails from the union office and would like to attend this meeting, please call us at 604-879-4671 to update your information or email us at

If you are unable to attend the September General Membership meeting but would like your name to stand if nominated, please email Rosemary Matheson, Local 15 Office Manager, at by 5:00 p.m. on September 22nd stating your intention to stand for election.  

In solidarity,

Warren Williams
