We need changes to the BC Labour Code
Workers were under attack for the 16 years of a BC Liberal government. Their rights and protections were rolled back. With a new B.C. government comes the opportunity to level the playing field for working people. The BC Federation of Labour has launched a campaign to bring urgently needed changes to the province’s labour code. Now’s the time to join with other workers to make these changes happen.
What are the issues?
1) Making it easier for workers to join a union
2) Improving employment standards so that all jobs are good jobs.
3) Making our workplaces safer and improving workers compensation for those who are injured or killed on the job.
4) Providing better access to apprenticeships and training to address skill shortages.
Your role in improving compensation
The BC Government needs to do more to support injured workers and their families. Injured and ill workers and their families should be fully compensated for their loss or injury. Sign the letter.
