The Alliance Executive Committee (AEC) has approved a one-time National Young Worker Forum to be held in Ottawa from December 7-9. This forum is an opportunity for a limited number of young workers (age 35 or under) to participate in a dynamic weekend of networking and planning for the 2019-2021 cycle.

On Saturday, April 14 at 8 pm, members of the BCFED Young Workers’ Committee are returning to Mac’s Convenience Store to raise awareness of the need for better protections for late night workers. Following the tragic death of Grant De Patie in a gas-and-dash incident in 2005, occupational health and safety regulations were strengthened to better protect late night retail workers. The new regulations were referred to as Grant’s Law. However, in April of 2012, the regulations were watered down due to pressure from companies like Mac’s.
