Government workers to strike Sept 5; HSA members encouraged to support in solidarity

On Wednesday, September 5, the BC Government and Service Employees Union (BCGEU), Professional Employees Association (PEA) and Canadian Office & Professional Employees Union (COPE) local 378 will go on a one-day strike.
Approximately 27,000 workers will strike to back their bargaining demands for a fair and reasonable contract. This will affect government offices, ICBC, and various public service sites in 153 communities across BC.
