Greetings K-12 Members:
Following the conclusion of each round of negotiations, our Vancouver School Board/CUPE Local 15 members will be required to decide if they wish to continue to be covered under the current VSB/CUPE Local 15 Benefit Plan or join the Provincial Benefit Plan.
It is important for members to know the details of their current plan and the differences between the two before making their decision. For that reason, we will be conducting an information/voting meeting on the date below in order for members to see the comparisons between the two plans in order to make an informed decision before casting your ballot.
Your bargaining committee is recommending you support the VSB/CUPE Local 15 Benefit Plan as it is superior to the Provincial Benefit Plan in many areas.
Meeting and Vote Details:
When: Thursday, May 25, 2023
Time: 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Location: Virtual via Zoom

You will need to complete the registration including your first and last name, otherwise your membership cannot be confirmed for voting purposes. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
