VICTORIA—CUPE locals 917,951 and 4163 are throwing a music party for UVic’s 50th Birthday. The show at the Farquhar Auditorium on campus will be hosted by CUPE BC president Barry O’Neill and will feature “unionmaid, hellraiser & Labour singer” Anne Feeney and legendary blues musician Jim Byrnes and his band. The event is in support of striking CUPE workers at UVic.
Barry O’Neill will bring greetings from the more than 80,000 CUPE members in BC and will address the current BC government’s attack on students and our public universities and colleges.
While the show is free, cash donations for the food bank will be gladly accepted at the door. Doors will open at 7:30, with the show running from 8-10pm at the Farquhar Auditorium.
Seating is free but reserved, so you must obtain a ticket for each person attending from the University Centre Box Office or online at https://tickets.uvic.ca/.
