ICBC and Cst. Sarah Beckett:
Many of you may have seen news stories just before the holidays highlighting the Insurance Corporation of BC’s attempt to hold Cst. Sarah Beckett responsible for the collision that took her life while on duty in April 2016. The NPF wrote a demand letter to the Attorney General of BC, who is responsible for ICBC, asking for action on this matter. You can read that letter here (NPF letter to Eby - ICBC Cst Beckett).
The way forward in 2020:
As we move into 2020, the NPF continues to establish its footprint and related policies and practices to serve our members and prepare for bargaining our first collective agreement. We have developed this infographic that shows they key events and milestones that can be expected in the coming year for negotiations, mediation and possibly arbitration.
As we enter a fresh new decade, and the first full year of NPF representation, we want to thank all members for your support over the last few years. 2019, in particular, was an historical year for both the RCMP and the NPF. For those of you working over New Year’s Eve and Day, thank you and stay safe.
