Members of Canadian Airways Lodge 764 were in attendance supporting the union brothers and sisters in Wisconsin at the International Solidarity Rally held in Peace Arch Park, on April 2, 2011.

 

Unions from all over British Columbia, Washington and Oregon turned up to hear the numerous spirited speeches from Labour leaders, included BC Federation of Labour President, Jim Sinclair and Canadian Labour Congress President, Ken Georgetti.  The 1,500 – 2,000 labour activists heard the horror stories of what Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s administration has legislated, stripping many workers of the fundamental right to collective bargaining.

 

Here in BC, we should be mindful of the events unfolding south of the border, in case our politicians decide to attempt to follow suit.  We need to be politically informed and active!
