Building a #BetterBC

November 2, 2019

Moving towards reconciliation

This week, we introduced historic legislation to make BC the first province to bring the UN’s Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People into law.

Let’s move forward on a clear path for everyone, with good jobs and opportunities, while recognizing Indigenous rights and protecting the environment.

Do you support our action to protect Indigenous rights, and create a path towards reconciliation? Let us know:

Holding the BC Liberals to account

Andrew Wilkinson and the BC Liberals are at it again. The other day, we learned that Todd Stone, as Transportation Minister in 2015, tried to give a $3 million ICBC building to an industry lobby group. And when asked, Andrew Wilkinson denied it!

Will you help us hold the BC Liberals to account, and make sure BC has a government that works for everybody? Please share MLA Ravi Khalon’s tweet, so more people can see the video evidence.

It’s time for Pacific Time

Earlier this year, we launched the largest public engagement undertaken by any government in BC history, with over 223,000 British Columbians weighing in on seasonal time changes. An overwhelming 93% said they were in favour of making Daylight Saving Time permanent.

This week, we tabled legislation that started the process of doing away with time changes and creating a new time zone called “Pacific Time”. Do you support this move to make Daylight Saving Time permanent in BC?

More action on affordable housing

Everybody deserves a safe, affordable place to live in their community, and we are continuing to invest in housing across the province – building homes for families, seniors, and those most in need.

Construction recently began on a building in Mission that will offer affordable rental units for seniors. Local MLA Bob D’Eith: “After years of neglect by the last government, we’re acting quickly to build the homes people need in communities throughout British Columbia.”

Machinists’ News – Report on District Lodge 140 Convention 2019, Victoria, BC (John Vincent)

Report on DL140 Convention, Victoria, BC (John Vincent)

By John Vincent
District 140 and Local Lodge 16 Communicator

Transportation District 140 Convention 2019 was held in Victoria, BC located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. Victoria is also the capital of British Columbia and it’s also known as the “The Garden City”. The convention was hosted at The Hotel Grand Pacific.

Special thanks to both Local lodge 764 and Local lodge 16 for being part of the host committee. A major “thank you” for all hard work organizing to setup the convention. We had 52 delegates and 30 guests this year.

We had a wide array of speakers throughout the two days with a packed agenda dealing with many topics such as the changing world of technology, automation, political action, communication and more. As a whole, we have many new sisters and brothers participating this year. It’s a major shift in participation and more involvement within Transportation District 140. Special thanks to Stan Pickthall, IAMAW Canadian General Vice President for joining us and sharing wisdom on the current state and the future of the union.

As the Transportation District 140 Communicator, I owe special thanks to past communicators who had setup great communication channels such as website, Facebook and Twitter to reach out to the members of this large cross-country district. Without the past setup I wouldn’t, and couldn’t, succeed. Special thanks to this framework previously set up by the previous communicator of District Lodge 140, Vincent Constantineau and guidance of Frank Saptel, Canadian Communications Representative.

Ultimately, with communications, face-to-face still ranks as the best way to move forward. It has been the old-school method yet remains the best. Without the face-to-face engagement, communication as a whole loses the human touch. It takes all of us to communicate with each other and share the knowledge and wisdom learned at the convention. Organizing has been a key part of success for Transportation District 140. Without the help Organizers we, as a district, wouldn’t have grown to this extent.

Overall, this was a great convention. Thank you for giving me an opportunity as District 140 Communicator to reach out to members of not only this District 140, but the IAM as a whole with this report. Together we can all make the difference to our members and labour movement. Solidarity!  “We are the IAM”!

Today, BC made history!

UN_Dec_legislation_FB_share.png

Today, the BC Government made history as the first province in Canada to introduce a bill implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

Indigenous rights are human rights. This landmark legislation is about our province taking real action on reconciliation.

The BCFED has a strong mandate from our membership in support of the implementation of Indigenous rights. BC workers are honoured to stand with Indigenous peoples as this groundbreaking legislation is brought into law.

We encourage all British Columbians to join us in showing their support by sharing our message of solidarityhttps://bcfed.ca/news/releases/bc-workers-welcome-introduction-indigenous-rights-legislation

In solidarity,

Laird
