CUPE 1004 stands in solidarity with injured traffic control worker

CUPE 1004 stands in solidarity with injured traffic control worker

VANCOUVER — On behalf of the 3500 members of CUPE Local 1004, including the outside workers of the City of Vancouver and the Vancouver Park Board, we send our most sincere condolences to the construction flagger who was viciously attacked and run over yesterday in Burnaby.

We have the utmost respect for the important work that our traffic control workers do. They put themselves in harm’s way day in and day out so that our members can do the important infrastructure work that the citizens of Vancouver depend on.

Because of the front line work our traffic control colleagues perform, CUPE members are safer and get to go home to our families every day.

We are pleased to see that the RCMP is pursuing this case and expect that the suspect will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. With construction season upon us we encourage all drivers to slow down and obey the laws in construction zones so all workers stay safe.

In solidarity with all traffic control workers,

 

Gary Parker
Vice President CUPE 1004

President CUPE 1004

Simon Challenger
President CUPE 23
