BURNABY—Following the delivery of the Throne Speech yesterday by Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon, CUPE BC President Paul Faoro issued the following statement:
BURNABY—CUPE 1816 ramped up its job action on Wednesday, with 450 of its members taking to the street in a highly visible protest against Pacific Blue Cross’s targeting of their retiree benefits and failure to bargain a fair collective agreement.
CUMBERLAND – Municipal workers in Cumberland, represented by CUPE 556, met Monday to ratify a new tentative agreement with the Village of Cumberland.
Nearly a month has passed since the May 9 provincial election, and it’s past time for the Premier to stop playing games with the results, says CUPE BC President Paul Faoro.
DELTA—CUPE 1091, representing Delta School District support workers, won the award for Best Website Redesign Produced by Volunteers at the annual Canadian Association of Labour Media (CALM) conference held this year in Toronto.
KELOWNA – CUPE local 338 members who work at the Kelowna RCMP Detachment have voted overwhelmingly in favour of strike action at a vote held last week after little progress was made during initial bargaining sessions.
For once the pollsters were right—they all called for a close election finish, and that’s what the voters delivered. The experience of the 2013 provincial election must have made pollsters feel like a meteorologist who’s called for a sunny long weekend that’s then followed by rain. Well in this election, pollsters predicted a near-tie in party standings in the Legislature, and that’s where we are now.
BURNABY – Preliminary results from a survey of CUPE custodians throughout B.C. indicate that a startling number of janitors—55.4 per cent—are not able to maintain schools to meet their own expectations for a clean, safe and healthy school environment.
