Pacific Blue Cross AGM Tues. July 24 @ Hilton Metrotown

All CUPE 23 members who receive extended health benefits are members of Pacific Blue Cross.

Last year they locked out their employees, members of CUPE 1816. Last year over 800 union members showed up to the annual general meeting to replace half of the PBC board with directors who would respect the workers. This year we have the chance to make sure the other half of the board also value their workers. CUPE 1816 is endorsing the 5 people listed below for election to the board.

Come out to the Hilton Metrotown on Tuesday July 24.

Bring your PBC card and photo ID.

Registration starts at 3pm, AGM is at 6pm. 

Plan to attend the Pacific Blue Cross AGM – Dec. 13

Let’s continue our support of CUPE 1816 members and protect our benefits.

All CUPE 23 members who are primary extended health benefits recipients are Pacific Blue Cross members. Please come out and help shift the direction of our benefits provider back to respecting workers and benefit recipients.

Location of the meeting is the Westin Bayshore in Vancouver – There will be shuttle buses running continuously from Waterfront Skytrain Station to the Westin Bayshore Hotel from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. There will also be other buses provided from locations around the Lower Mainland.
