  • Join us to commemorate 100 years of standing up for our rights at work – celebration and film screening

    Friday, July 26, 2019 at 05:30 PM
    BCGEU HQ in Burnaby , BC, Canada

    On July 26, 1919, a group of provincial government employees gathered in Vancouver to form an organization dedicated to fighting for their rights at work. Included in their stated goals were: a fair policy for promotions, equal pay for equal work for women, the abolition of patronage, and a civil service commission with employee representation.

    Through many changes in our union and the world around us, 100 years later the BCGEU continues to be at the forefront of fighting for dignity, fairness and respect on the job for all workers in B.C.

    Please join me, members of our provincial executive, active and retired members, and friends of the BCGEU as we celebrate our last 100 years and envision what the next 100 years will look like for working people in our province.
