CUPE BC has called for a public inquiry into scandals surrounding the BC apprenticeship program and the new Safety Standards Act after it was revealed that a training centre manager had inflated the marks of program participants.

Firing one manager is hardly an overhaul of a system that has been eroding apprenticeship standards ever since this government started tinkering with it, says CUPE BC president Barry O'Neill. It was the elimination of government responsibility for worker training that led to cooking student marks in the first place.
