VESP Package Information Sessions & Voting Details

Thursday, September 5, 2019

If you are a member of VESP you should have received an information package to your home address and further information from your employer regarding proposed changes to the plan. You should have also received a PIN from Simply Voting which will enable you to vote online. If you have not received a PIN please contact George & Bell at or 604-260-6502. The information package is posted at

It is critical that everyone votes as a minimum of 50% voter turnout is required to make the changes. If voter turnout is less than 50% the vote fails and nothing is improved.

Some employers have set up information sessions with a representative from VESP. The sessions will include a quick overview of the changes you will be voting on, as well as a question and answer period. The attached documents summarize the proposed changes to the plan. If you have additional questions you can contact George & Bell during regular business hours.
