CLC – Prime Minister’s Youth Council

Prime Minister’s Youth Council

Yesterday, PM Trudeau officially announced the launch for applications for the Prime Minister’s Youth Council.

The Youth Council will be structured to have young individuals participate and advise the PM on national issues such as employment, access to education, building stronger communities, climate change, and sustainability. It is our understanding that youth will drive part of the agenda, as well as advise on current priority issues for the government.

The Council will be composed of 30 young people ages 16-24 who will serve 2 year terms. All travel and expenses to participate will be covered by the PMO, who is dedicated to ensuring a diverse cohort of young people that represent all corners of Canada.

It would be amazing to have lots of young labour-minded folks apply – young people who are union members, the children of union members, who are active in community campaigns, and who have attended the union summer camps for teens across the country. images

Please share far and wide with young people in your community, and encourage awesome young activists that you know to apply. The PMO has asked that organizations with reach to youth in remote communities also help support the applications of young people who might not have internet access, by spreading the word and allowing access to any community computers so that young folks can fill out the application.

The application will be launched on July 22nd, 2016, and the first wave of applications are due August 12th, 2016. Applications will only be accepted online – no paper forms are available.

BC FED – Get a job. But I already have one!

Get a job. But I already have one!

fightfor15bc

Yes, Christy Clark, working poverty is a real problem in BC. More than 100,000 workers living in Metro Vancouver are poor.

Today, a report titled Working Poverty in Metro Vancouver was released. The results are disturbing, but not surprising for those living in the Lower Mainland. Too many working people are struggling to get by. Telling people to ‘get a job’ doesn’t cut it.

The real solution to poverty wages is to end poverty wages by raising the minimum wage to $15/hr.

Help us end poverty wages in BC by signing the petition.

If you’ve already signed, tell your friends to sign too.

Because if you work, you shouldn’t be poor. 

Thanks for your support,

The Fight for $15

BC FED – We are one step closer

We are one step closer

fightfor15bc

We have some exciting news. Today we are one step closer to ending poverty wages in BC.

This afternoon in Kamloops, John Horgan, the leader of the BC NDP, has made a commitment to implement a $15 per hour minimum wage!

If the BC NDP is elected in 2017, they will raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour by the end of their first term.

Join us in sending a message to John Horgan to let him know the BC NDP has made the right decision. 

We need to make sure that John Horgan knows he and the BC NDP are on the right track. We need politicians to take bold economic positions that will make a real difference in the lives of working people. Because the people who work in our province must be able to afford to live here.

This is a huge step forward for our campaign and most importantly for low-wage workers in BC. Your support has built the momentum necessary to ensure that raising the minimum wage will be an important issue in next year’s provincial election.

Together we can build an economy that works for everyone.

Excited for the progress we have made together,

The Fight for $15 Team

New Westminster & District Labour Council – Welcome to New Canadians Event

Welcome to New Canadians Event

When:      Saturday, June 25th  12 – 4 pm

Where:    Tipperary Park/Friendship Gardens, New Westminster

4th Street & Royal Avenue – beside City Hall * Parking in front & back of City Hall + Queens Avenue @ 4th Street

image002

Service agencies such as Mosaic, ISS of BC, Success, United Way of the Lower Mainland and the New Westminster School District have assisted the Labour Council to reach the widest possible number of refugees and new immigrant families living in the City of New Westminster.

The Welcome Event will connect union leaders, their members, local government leaders and citizens with new members of their community in a relaxed and fun-filled family event.  The event is being held in the one of the most beautiful parks right in the heart of the City. We are expecting a high turnout especially if the weather cooperates.

We have an excellent line up of local artists who will entertain us along with games & activities galore for the kids.  * Volunteers will be serving barbeque veggie/meat/halal hot dogs, homemade samosas, water, juice, cotton candy and more.  * In respect of Ramadan, food is an optional feature of the event.

Come out and help give a warm welcome  – a welcome to the beautiful City of New Westminster & a warm welcome to Canada

This is your opportunity to mix, mingle, share stories and helpful information.

The event is two days ahead of Canada’s official Multiculturalism Day and is five days before Canada Day.   We can’t think of a better way to celebrate than an event like this.

* Please note that union booths are not going to be featured at this event.   There will be an information booth sponsored by local police, fire, refugee & immigrant service groups only. 

We look forward to seeing union leaders and members on Saturday, June 25th 12 – 4 pm. If you can volunteer, we welcome you to come @ 10:30 am to help with the set-up.
