VICTORIA—Unifor activists will present policy proposals on workplace health and safety reforms, economic security for women, and progressive labour law amendments during meetings this week in Victoria.
“Last spring, British Columbians voted for change. There is no time to waste when it comes to making workplaces safer and restoring workers’ basic rights,” said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President.
Unifor says the former government stripped B.C.’s most vulnerable workers of rights that left exploitation and wage theft virtually un-policed. Re-establishing clear standards with swift enforcement will be a priority for the union in the months ahead.
