Advocacy and action
Local 1611 realizes that there are continuous challenges facing workers in British Columbia and the Yukon. Issues that affect all individuals in our region. We are actively lobbying all levels of government on multiple issues, so that we can have a seat at the table. We are relentlessly working to ensure that we are providing a voice for workers across the Province.
We know that if we collectively lobby and are active, changes can be made that are in the best interest of the people of our Province. We ask our members to take action in diverse ways: lobbying MLAs, writing letters to editors, making submissions to legislative committees, holding community forums. Whatever way you choose to put advocacy into action, you will need solid information and sound strategies to assist you.
