CUPE launches Bill 21 letter campaign

CUPE launches Bill 21 letter campaign

BURNABY – The CUPE national website has launched an online letter campaign in support of B.C.’s ambulance paramedics and against plans to use scabs as “volunteer paramedics” at the 2010 Games. CUPE members, family and friends are encouraged to send letters critical of the province legislating ambulance paramedics back to work and VANOC’s interference in free collective bargaining.

The link features background information on the dispute and sample letters to send to the provincial government against Bill 21 to “put the B.C. government on notice: They must return to the bargaining table immediately to negotiate a fair collective agreement” with CUPE 873.

The e-action “will go a long way to let (the government) know that workers’ rights cannot and will not be trampled for the Olympics or any other excuse.”

The next B.C. event in CUPE’s campaign against the Ambulance Paramedics Collective Agreement Act (Bill 21) and in support of free collective bargaining takes place in Kamloops on Saturday, Dec. 5 at 12 noon at the Riverside Park Band Shell (corner of Lorne Street West and 2nd Avenue).
