by Petra Hoy, Education Assistant:
The recent CUPE BC Education Sector Conference was an eye-opening experience for me, as well as a thought-provoking experience. The basic structure of the event was well-planned. Sessions I attended were informative and I met and got to know several CUPE members from other areas in BC, and heard about their struggles and successes in their respective districts.
No matter where we work, we share a common purpose. In CUPE, we are united in work in the field of education, to show students of all ages how we work together, support each other, respect and learn from the struggles of the past, and fight for our rights in the future.
