NDP – TAKE ACTION: Support aviation and aerospace workers

TAKE ACTION: Support aviation and aerospace workers

https://www.ndp.ca/aviation

Air transportation and aerospace are among the sectors most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since the onset of this pandemic, tens of thousands of direct jobs have been lost across the country.

These are not just numbers. Families and communities have been devastated.

If there is no federal intervention, tens of thousands of more jobs will be lost.

But despite numerous calls for help, Justin Trudeau is slow to intervene.

Justin Trudeau is willing to do anything for his rich friends, but when it comes to workers, he asks them to wait.

Elsewhere in the world, many countries have already made significant efforts to support workers in the air transport and aerospace sectors.

It’s time for the federal government to do its part.

We in the NDP want to protect these good jobs and help workers in these sectors.

That is why we are calling for immediate, strategic and specific assistance for these sectors which will:

• Force companies to use the wage subsidy program to protect jobs and wages.

• Ensure that all the rules in the Canada Labour Code, collective agreements and health and safety requirements are respected.

• Ensure that public financing supports workers and jobs directly by preventing further layoffs and encouraging re-hiring laid off workers.

• Ensure that companies receiving public funding do not offer bonuses to senior executives and donot distribute dividends.

• Ensure that funds extended to companies include an equity stake that will guarantee protection of the public interest.

• Ensure that public funds support workers and consumers alike and will not force air transport companies to choose between protecting jobs and refunding passengers for cancelled flights.

• Support a national strategy for aerospace that supports workers and jobs in Canada.

• Put in place adequate support for NAV-Canada to preserve and restore it’s work force and continue to deliver its key services

Tell Justin Trudeau’s Liberals to act now to protect air and aerospace workers.

BC NDP News – The result for a #BetterBC

The result for a #BetterBC

 

Building a #BetterBC
The final results are in

This election, British Columbians were given the chance to choose who they want to lead them out of the COVID-19 pandemic – and beyond.

On Sunday, the final results came in. Thanks to the work of supporters like you, we’ve won 57 of the legislature’s 87 seats – the best showing for the BC NDP since the 90s.

With your help, we’ve managed to make sure BC will continue to have a government that puts people first and keeps our province moving forward.

Whether you volunteered, donated, or simply voted, we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you, for all your support!

Thank you, Carole!
As BC’s Finance Minister and Deputy Premier – and throughout her 30 years of public service – Carole James fought for the people of BC with unwavering compassion and thoughtfulness.

Now, Carole is retiring from public office. We will miss her deeply, but her grace and tenacity will continue to inspire new generations of New Democratic leaders.

Join John Horgan and New Democrats across BC in sending a personal message to Carole, thanking her for everything she has done for our party and our province.

Happy Diwali!

Today, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Jains across BC and around the world celebrate Diwali and Bandi Chhor Divas.

Diwali and Bandi Chhor Divas bring people together to celebrate the victory of light over darkness. This year, celebrations will look a little different, as British Columbians limit their social interactions.

If you’re celebrating this weekend, be sure to remember Dr. Bonnie Henry’s advice on celebrating only with your immediate household and follow all public health orders.

To enjoy Diwali celebrations in BC from the safety of your own home, head to Diwali Fest’s YouTube channel.

Support for renters
Renters in BC have been struggling with cost increases for years. Now, when managing through this pandemic, no renter should have to face the added pressure of a rent increase.

That’s why we’ve taken action to extend the freeze on rent increases until July next year. After swearing in a new Cabinet, we plan to freeze rents through the end of 2021 and permanently cap future rent increases to the rate of inflation.

If you agree with our action to make sure people can stay in their homes as we all keep working to get BC through the pandemic, add your name today.

Lest we forget

On November 11, Remembrance Day, British Columbians honoured Canada’s veterans and paused to reflect on the horrors of war.

In a statement, Premier John Horgan urged British Columbians to consider “lives lost and the sacrifices made by those who returned from battle with injuries, both visible and invisible.”

Premier Horgan: “For generations, Canadians have bravely risked their lives to protect ours. They have sacrificed so much to build a better world.”

Stay safe

A new provincial health order is in effect until November 23 across most of the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. If you’re in an affected area, familiarize yourself with the new restrictions and be prepared to limit your social interactions.

British Columbians continue to show extraordinary resilience as we make the sustained effort needed to get through the COVID-19 pandemic. Together, we can protect the most vulnerable in our communities – as well as the economy that supports us all.

BC FED – How did we do?

How did we do?

BC Federation of Labour
The provincial election may be over, but our job of protecting hardworking British Columbians continues. And we want to know what you think.So we’ve designed a post-election poll to ask how our Future for All campaign worked for you.

Can you take two minutes to let us know what we did right, what we did wrong, and how we can do better?

Were we clear about our purpose? Did we stand for the same things you did? Did we move you to act?

Making sure we’re heard during elections is a big part of our programming — but it’s only half the fight. Long after the polls close, we stick around to make sure our voice doesn’t fade. We need to continue engaging our supporters to ensure campaign promises like affordable childcare, expanded universal healthcare, and more worker protections don’t fade with the spotlight.

Help us evaluate our last steps so we can plan our next ones.

Thanks,

The BC Federation of Labour
