VICTORIA If Premier Gordon Campbell comes looking for a rumble, hell get one. Thats what about 500 CUPE activists will hear from national president Judy Darcy tomorrow at the CUPE B.C. provincial convention here.

Darcy will talk about Campbells 90-day plan and what it means for working people. It does not mean prosperity for public sector workers, she says. It does not mean prosperity for the people of B.C.

In keeping with the convention theme, Community Works, Darcy will urge delegates to protect our rights by organizing resistance in every workplace, in every neighbourhood, in every town, in every city.Work in our communities to keep them working.

Its building broad alliancesin our community thats going to save us all from Campbell, she said. Its building a powerful movement at the community level that is going to stop privatization of our schools, our water, our recreation facilities. Its mobilizing in our communities thats going to stop free trade. Think global, act local. Never have those words been more true.
