CUPE BC and the BC Health Services Division have launched an online campaign to bring international attention to the recent International Labor Organization decision condemning the BC government.

The International Labour Organization (ILO) found that the British Columbia (Canada) government violated basic international rights and standards protecting workers. The government of the province of British Columbia passed six pieces of legislation affecting 150,000 workers in education, health care and social services.

These laws impose contracts, force an end to legal strike action, strip basic protections from negotiated collective agreements and pave the way for thousands of women to lose their jobs.

At the same time the government of British Columbia wants to host the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Send BC Premier Gordon Campbell a message.
