CUPE 7000 Statement

Today’s media coverage of the labour dispute between CUPE 7000 and the BCRTC (SkyTrain) included interviews with a TransLink spokesperson whose inaccurate statements and incendiary language directed at the union do nothing to move the parties closer to a collective agreement.

Universal pharmacare needed to address employment iniquities
