Rally for Metrotown Hilton Workers Tomorrow

Tomorrow, join HSA president Kane Tse at the Hilton Metrotown Lockout Rally and help support women who have been locked out of their jobs for an entire year.

A Different Sort of Labour Day

A message from HSA President Kane Tse

But this has been a very different year. We don’t have to recall the distant past to see the remarkable commitment of working people in BC. We’re seeing history being made, all around us, in real time.
