VICTORIA—CUPE 410, representing Greater Victoria Public Library workers, will hold a march and rally on September 21 in support of a fair collective agreement that includes pay equity.
The union put job action on hold last week in the hopes that library management would return to negotiations. However, due to the employer’s refusal to bargain, CUPE 410 will resume job action, and for the first time will pull all 250 of its members off the job for the full day, affecting all nine branches of the library.

11:00 a.m. Gather at the Central Library, 735 Broughton Street
11:30 a.m. March down Douglas Street to Centennial Square
12:00 p.m. Rally at Centennial Square
Speakers include Neil Williams, past-president of the Greater Victoria Public Library Board, Rob Fleming, MLA for Victoria-Hillside, and Alex Youngberg, president of CUPE 391 representing currently striking library workers in Vancouver
