Adult Educators working in Vancouver have been part of VESTA since 1994. Given that the Adult Educators have a Collective Agreement with the Vancouver Board of Education that is separate from the K-12 bargaining unit (see link Documents & Forms), VESTA has always recognized the Adult Educators as a sub-local and provides for a part-time Adult Educator President to augment the support available to all members.
Adult Educators are encouraged to participate in all VESTA Staff Rep Assemblies, General Meetings, Staff Rep Union Trainings, and other events organized by VESTA. One of VESTA’s Local Representative to the BCTF positions is reserved for an Adult Educator member, so that the sub-local’s voice is always guaranteed a spot at BCTF Representative Assemblies and the BCTF Annual General Meeting.
