BC Premier eager to work together with UBCM members to build strong communities

VANCOUVER – BC Premier John Horgan pledged to work together with local governments to tackle the province’s tough challenges during his address to delegates at the annual convention of the Union of British Columbia Municipalities—and CUPE members in British Columbia are looking forward to the work ahead, CUPE BC Secretary-Treasurer Trevor Davies said today.

CUPE BC will always stand up against hate

There’s no middle ground in combatting bigotry
As Pride events got underway in August and we were celebrating with our LGBTQ friends and allies, CUPE BC released a video featuring Vancouver human rights lawyer, community activist and CUPE Local 1004 member Adrienne Smith, informing viewers of the appropriate use of gender pronouns. They explained that using appropriate pronouns is important because it’s the law, it helps fight transphobia, and it shows respect.
