VICTORIA—More than fifty Unifor members from across the province are participating in meetings today with MLAs from their regions and cabinet ministers overseeing key economic sectors. “This is a great opportunity to directly communicate the ideas and concerns of working people with the very decision-makers who update B.C.’s laws and regulations to improve working conditions for all,” said Gavin McGarrigle, Unifor Western Regional Director. “Lobby meetings are an important tool in our broader approach to affecting change for workers.” This week Unifor members will meet with the premier, most of cabinet, and several government MLAs from constituencies where members live and work. In addition to forestry, transit, and pay equity, Unifor members will share recommendations for improving employment standards and workers’ bargaining power.
