Negotiations Committee: Applications Now Open

RDBC is heading towards a year of negotiations for the upcoming changes to your Collective Agreement. We are looking for passionate, knowledgable and committed members to join us in advocating for the best Collective Agreement possible. If you think you have what it takes, apply here. Deadline is Sept. 5.

CoPR Nominations Are Open Until Sept. 3

This is an exciting year for CoPR, as we will play a very significant role in relaying information to all residents about the Collective Agreement negotiations from the RDBC Negotiations Committee and Board of Directors, as well as bringing feedback back to the negotiators. CoPR reps will keep the residents in their programs updated on the negotiations process and encourage participation from the programs to help the negotiators set priorities. For more info and to apply, click here.
