Community Social Services: CLBC executive bonuses expose government's double standard; vote YES for a strong strike mandate

The provincial government has given community social services workers another strong motivation to attend strike vote meetings being held around BC. 

Inflation is driving up the cost of living. The price of a litre of gas has climbed by 43 per cent since the last pay raise for community social services workers. Bread is up more than 11 per cent and milk more than 10 per cent.

However, these are not the only double digit increases.

Last week, British Columbians were dismayed by news that senior executives at Community Living British Columbia are receiving huge bonuses, after all. Frontline workers are expressing outrage that these wage increases of 10% or more are being handed to the senior managers responsible for mismanaging community living services and who have created the current crisis.

• Send a strong message that this double standard has to stop.
• Attend a strike vote meeting.
• And vote YES to give your bargaining committee the strong mandate it needs.
