Re: Strike at Port of VancouverAs you will have heard, the Provincial government is threatening to force striking truckers (members of Unifor) back to work through the implementation of legislation.  Working with Unifor we are organizing a rally to oppose the governments’ action.  Please encourage as many members, staff and supporters to participate in this rally.

We encourage you to communicate with your members in person and by using home email addresses. Unfortunately, the long-standing practice of dropping union flyers on people’s desks at work has become trickier.

As an overview of the course itself, we students spent three days learning about the CB process, and the last two days applying it. We were blessed with two amazing instructors who were Joey Hartman and Dan Klassen – both union and community activists in BC.
