BC FED – Do you have 60 seconds?

Do you have 60 seconds?

BC Federation of Labour
Through this pandemic, British Columbians have shown what we can do when we all come together.

But this crisis has also exposed the deep gaps left by decades of cuts, and it’s made us realize what really matters – the safety and security of our loved ones; and support, when we need it most.

Our province is at a crossroads and we have a choice to make – go back to the senseless cuts that left us vulnerable, or keep strengthening the support system we all rely on.

So today we launched our campaign to create a future for all of us.

Here’s the first look at the brand new ad for our campaign that we just launched,– I wanted to make sure you saw it first as one of our core supporters.

We believe that bouncing back must be more than just recovery for BC.

That’s what this campaign is all about. A future where we invest in working people, good jobs, and a strong support system for all of us.

But this needs to be a campaign powered by as many British Columbians as possible – and that begins with you getting engaged from the start. Your support right now is crucial.

So are you ready to see what our campaign is all about? Watch our new ad and share it with your friends online:

Thanks for your help, Together, we can build a future for all of us.

Talk soon,

CLC – Add Your Voice – Include a Child Care Plan that works for working families

Add Your Voice – Include a Child Care Plan that works for working families

We know that families in your community are anxious as they make the decision to send their children back to school or to further their education from home.

Families with small children will have to decide whether-or-not to place small children in childcare or struggle to return to work without adequate child care in place.

Governments across the country have recognized that in order for Canadians to go back to work, they need child care, we also know that  across the country childcare spaces can be difficult to come by. 

As we begin to shape the new normal, child care must be at the heart of the post-COVID economy.  Please join our call to disaster-proof the social safety net and include a childcare plan that works for working families.

Decision-makers are making choices about our future.

We need to learn lessons from the pandemic and reject calls for American-style cuts, austerity, and privatization. Instead, we need a plan that’s rooted in our way of doing things – together.

Add your name and tell your federal and provincial/territorial governments to:

  • Kick-start local economies by investing in public infrastructure, public services, and a made-in-Canada procurement strategy.
  • Keep seniors safe by making long-term care part of Canada’s public health care system and creating a universal prescription drug plan.
  • Make sure employment insurance is there for everyone who needs it when the next disaster hits; have a plan for child care that works; and keep communities strong with more affordable housing.

Support COVID-19 fines

 

The people of BC have made incredible sacrifices to keep our families and communities safe. But a small minority of selfish individuals are breaking the COVID-19 rules.

That’s why your BC NDP government has introduced tough $2,000+ fines for businesses and party-goers who won’t play by the rules to help BC’s recovery.

We can’t stand by and let a small number of people put us all at risk. Those who break the rules should pay the price. Do you agree? Then add your name today.

Celebrate progress this Labour Day

Recent months have truly brought home the importance of secure jobs and safe working conditions for everyone. When you’re relaxing this Labour Day, take a moment to remember the many people in BC who have fought – and continue to fight – for workers’ rights.

Your BC NDP government is fighting that fight to support the working people of our province. We know there’s much more to be done, but we’ve made a lot of progress since 2017 – and we intend to ensure good jobs and workers’ rights are protected throughout this crisis and beyond.

Praise for our Premier

We think Premier John Horgan has been doing a fantastic job through some pretty tough times and we couldn’t be prouder of his smart, compassionate leadership.

So, we were delighted to see that John’s coalition partner and former BC Green Party leader Andrew Weaver had some very kind words to say about the Premier this week.

Speaking about our province’s future, he said: “British Columbia would benefit from having Mr. Horgan as Premier. He’s clearly indicated to me that he cares deeply, profoundly about people.”

More chances to socialize safely

Labour Day may be coming up but it’s not your last chance for summer fun. Our innovative virtual fundraisers will be keeping that summer feeling alive right through September, offering plenty more chances to support our MLAs and socialize safely with your fellow New Democrats.

Coming up, we’ve got a fun-filled evening of trivia with Carole James and Judy Darcy, the chance to learn how to knit alongside Delta North MLA Ravi Kahlon, and a big quiz night with the Richmond-Steveston BC NDP.

BC's Back to School Plan

BC students will return to in-class learning this month. To help keep everyone safe, special health and safety measures have been brought in, funding has been increased for protective equipment like masks, and a new system of “learning groups” has been created.

To make sure parents and students have access to all the information they need, details of BC’s Back to School Plan are available online. Questions or concerns? Visit the provincial government’s site to find everything you need to know.

CLC – They’re literally shovel-ready

They’re literally shovel-ready

CLC Logo

Six months into this pandemic, millions of Canadians want to be working, but the jobs aren’t there.

There are shovel-ready projects the federal government can green-light today. Those jobs would help to kick-start our economy.

Our economic recovery depends on these projects.

Email your MP and your provincial/territorial decision-makers and tell them to make jobs their priority. We know this is one of the best ways to get a politician’s attention – and get some action happening in Ottawa. 

It’s time for a Canadian plan that disaster-proofs our communities. We need a plan that works for us by taking care of everyone, especially through hard times.

In the pandemic, businesses shut down and travel restrictions are imposed. Many of us stayed quarantined at home. As a result, people with low-wage jobs had their hours cut or lost their jobs altogether. Essential workers put themselves at risk by serving the public.

Many of those workers are women, Black, Indigenous, people of colour, young people, and people with disabilities. They are feeling the biggest impact from this health crisis.

Tell decision-makers they need to fix this by replacing lost jobs with better jobs. We’ve written the letter – all you have to do is add your name and hit send. 

With millions of jobs lost, we need a shovel-ready plan to replace those jobs with better ones. We need investments in green infrastructure, educating our youth, and caring for others.

Thank you for taking this important step, Siddhartha.
