Our media team have been working hard to get the news about the 7:01 Movement out there and we had a chance to talk about it on CKNW yesterday (recording attached). Hopefully some more media coverage will come through next week.
A great chance to talk about our partnership with HEU here and highlight the work they are leading on behalf of these workers. Any chance you get over the weekend please share the petition and, of course, sign it too!
Please help us get early momentum on this campaign!
Today we launched our 7:01 Movement, advocating for all healthcare workers to continue to receive fair pay and benefits after the pandemic. The 7:01 Movement was launched to build off the public’s show of support for its healthcare workers during the 7pm applause. The 7:01 Movement features a petition that supports healthcare workers permanently maintaining the fair wages they have rightfully earned during this crisis.
As the union’s credit union, we have been active in supporting the working community and their struggles for fair wages, workplace safety, and worker rights. The 7:01 Movement is another strong show of support from CSCU for BC workers and the labour movement.

Our research shows 88 percent of British Columbians support continuing the levelled-up pay for health care workers. There is also strong support for providing equal pay and benefit standards for long-term care workers. Alongside the Hospital Employees’ Union, we are encouraging British Columbians to show their support beyond the 7:00 clap and sign our petition.
Thanks for your support!
