The new collective agreement will apply from April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2022. The BC Government and Service Employees` Union (BCGEU) said that on 26 August, workers in the Community Social Services Sector (CSS) voted 85.7% in favour of ratifying a new collective agreement. BCGEU/NUPGE is the industry`s largest union, representing two-thirds of unionized social workers in British Columbia. These caring professionals provide support, services and resources for adults and children with disabilities, women and children fleeing violence, Aboriginal families in need, vulnerable youth, drug addicts and much more. “After 16 years of wage cuts and moderation that are driving the sector to crisis, this agreement with a government that wants to put people first provides a foundation on which to build,” says Stephanie Smith, President of the BCGEU. “We welcome the tremendous progress made in supporting the important work of CSS workers. However, the low level of support for the Aboriginal Services Treaty shows how much more needs to be done. Over the next three years, the union will continue to work with SSC members to further strengthen support for the sector. Vancouver (August 29, 2018) – Members of the B.C. Government and Service Employees`Union (BCGEU/NUPGE) in the field of Community Social Services (CSS) voted 85.7% in favour of ratifying a new collective agreement.

The CSS is made up of three collective agreements: the Community workers lived at 82.3% and ratify their agreement; General services ratified at 95.8 per cent; indigenous Services ratified at 50.9 per cent.
Weighted average ratification was 85.7% for the three subsectors. “After 16 years of wage cuts and moderation that are driving the sector to crisis, this agreement with a government that wants to put people first provides a foundation on which to build.” Stephanie Smith, President of the BCGEU To build a better B.C for all, the provincial government has identified three key priorities in its strategic plan for the next three years: making life more affordable; Services that people can count on and building a strong and sustainable economy. The new collective agreement we are working on for SSC workers can help the government achieve these important goals. See: Strategic Plan 2018/19 – 2021/22 The ratified agreement is the result of negotiations between the Community Union for Collective Bargaining on Social Services (CSSBA) and the Association of Community Social Services Employers (CSSEA).
