Representative Matters

  • Union of B.C. Performers – On February 8, 2023, Koskie Glavin Gordon successfully represented the Union of B.C. Performers (UBCP) at the British Columbia Court of Appeal.  The decision concerned UBCP’s right to direct its benefits trust, and thereby allow UBCP members to transfer their benefits and certain assets held under trust, to an alternative benefits provider that serves both UBCP and the national branch of the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television, and Radio Artists (ACTRA).
