Recent Labour Action at Samaritan House

We are pleased to report that ICCS has reached an agreement with the BCGEU that the union will remove its picket lines at ICCS facilities while the parties attempt to resolve outstanding collective bargaining issues; these discussions will take place over the next two to three weeks. It is hoped that these talks will generate agreement on scheduling which has been the most contentious issue between the parties. If no settlement is reached, an Essential Services designation is in place, as are agreed-to Essential Service levels. If job action resumes in the future, ICCS is confident it can continue to deliver its services without interruption.
