Add Your Voice: Paid Sick Days for Every Worker in BC!
Today, The Vancouver Sun published our op-ed on paid sick leave, which you can find here. With it, we’re ramping up our campaign for paid sick leave by creating an opportunity to send a message to the BC government asking them to lead the country with paid sick leave for every worker.
The momentum is growing, with every provincial and territorial Federation of Labour backing the push for universal paid sick leave. And BC’s Minister of Labour Harry Bains has publicly recognized the need for expanded paid sick leave.
Would you be able to lend your support by calling on your members to send a message to the government and share it with their friends, family and social media followers? The letter, addressed to Minister Bains and Health Minister Adrian Dix, is available in English, Tagalog, Panjabi, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese.
We know the public support is out there, and your help will be instrumental in getting us off to a great start. Together, we’re going to ensure a legacy that will make a huge difference in the lives of working people and the health of our province.
