2023 Everclean Bargaining

Show your support for Vancouver’s Janitors, share our story:


Everclean workers at three shopping malls in the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island will be bargaining a renewal to their Collective Bargaining Agreement in June to win much needed improvements – cost of living wage increases, improved benefits, a pension plan, better health & safety measures, and job security! 

Workers at Uptown Shopping Mall in Victoria, Coquitlam Centre, and Sevenoaks Mall in Abbotsford provide essential services to the public they serve and are major hubs in these communities. The workers at each of these malls have come a long way in forming their Union with SEIU Local 2 and winning a first Collective Agreement. 

The rise in the cost of living and unprecedented inflation we are experiencing means workers are still struggling to pay bills and make ends meet. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) as calculated by Statistics Canada has annual inflation at 6.8%, the highest we have seen in 31 years!

That’s why Everclean workers are steadfast in standing together and winning a strong contract in this upcoming round of bargaining.

Ready to Take Action!

Over 94% of Everclean workers surveyed have indicated they are ready to take action to win a strong contract.
