White Rock residents concerned about potential change to for profit waste services

WHITE ROCK – More than 50 residents gathered Wednesday night (April 19) to attend “Trash Talk”, a community forum organized in support of keeping publicly delivered solid waste services in White Rock. The forum was hosted by CUPE 402-01, the union that represents White Rock municipal workers, and included a panel of speakers followed by a question and answer session. 

On May 9, here’s something to vote for

Rather than just turf Christy Clark, let’s elect a government that works for all of us
If you’ve read any of my columns since I became CUPE BC’s president, you’ll know I believe this province badly needs a new government. In just a few short weeks we’ll have an opportunity on May 9 to give Christy Clark and her BC Liberals their pink slips, replacing them with a progressive government that’s there for working people and their families.

WHITE ROCK – Municipal workers in White Rock are taking action and have organized a community forum to discuss the future of solid waste services (garbage, recycling and green waste) as the City seriously considers privatizing this community service.


Custodians kick off campaign

K-12 custodians throughout B.C. are being surveyed about working conditions and the effects of cuts on the services they provide.  Pictured are CUPE 606 custodians at Ladysmith Secondary School (L-R) Melinda Joyce, Vicki McMurtie and Teddy Puska.
BURNABY—Chronic underfunding and lack of support for public education by the BC Liberals has created a crisis in our schools. Many CUPE members have faced cuts and layoffs, the services they provide lost to students.
