CUPE BC puts politics into action for activists

BURNABY — CUPE BC's Political Action Committee is holding a three-day conference for CUPE members in Burnaby as BC gears up for local elections across the province in November, as well as a possible provincial election as early as this summer.

The theme of the conference—Putting Politics Into Action—will feature workshops on a wide variety of topics, including the increasing use of social media like Twitter and Facebook in elections, post-election relationships with elected officials and developing campaign skills at the local level.

The conference will take place Jun 14-16 at the Hilton Metrotown Hotel in Burnaby. Registration is open to CUPE BC members. Click here for a description of workshops, and here for a registration form.
