British Columbia Government and Service Employees' Union ( BCGEU )


British Columbia Government and Service Employees'...'s picture

67,000 members strong! The BCGEU is one of the most diverse unions in British Columbia. We represent approximately 67,000 men and women in more than 550 bargaining units. Our union can trace its beginnings back to the early 1900s when provincial government employees formed an association to address their working conditions. Since then, the union has organized thousands of workers outside the government service.

About forty percent of the BCGEU membership work in the direct government service. They include the women and men who protect children, provide financial assistance to the poor, protect the environment and manage our natural resources, care for the mentally ill in institutions, staff provincial correctional facilities, fight forest fires, and provide the government's technical and clerical services.
