VICTORIA—CUPE 410, representing 250 employees of the Greater Victoria Public Library system, has enlisted the support of the BC Teachers’ Federation for its second job action since serving strike notice last week.
The job action, to be held outside all GVPL branches, takes place tomorrow (Thursday) from 2 pm to 5 pm. Themed “Education and the Public Library”, it coincides with the time students arrive after school to use library services for homework and research.
Susan Lambert, first vice-president of the BC Teachers’ Federation, will be in attendance at the Central library branch on 735 Broughton Street at 2pm. She will bring greetings and support from the BCTF and talk about the important link between the education system and public libraries.
Lambert, a teacher-librarian, will also be available for media interviews along with CUPE 410 president Ed Seedhouse, who will have further news to report when the job action ends at 5 pm.
