The Manitoba Federation of Labour and the New Westminster and District Labour Council have adopted resolutions supporting CUPE/HEU’s efforts to defend health care workers in BC and to fight contracting-out.

At its December meeting, the Manitoba Federation of Labour executive adopted a resolution urging the CLC to take action to tackle the problem of unions that join with employers in “the race to the bottom” that is contracting out.

The MFL executive also pledged to support CUPE and HEU’s efforts to continue to represent contracted-out health care workers in BC.

Meanwhile, closer to the battle zone, the New Westminster and District Labour Council has also weighed in on CUPE/HEU’s side. The council unanimously adopted a resolution calling on the CLC to respect its own resolution on the issue of voluntary agreements with privatizing multinationals and pledging solidarity with workers facing job loss.
