Canada’s largest union in the private sector welcomes the resignation of Christy Clark and the prospect of a new government in British Columbia.
“From childcare to electoral reform, the BC NDP platform made important promises for BC’s working families,” said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President. “We are thrilled that John Horgan will get the opportunity to deliver on policies that will improve the lives of British Columbians.”
With a BC NDP government in place supported by the BC Green Party, Unifor says that the province can forge ahead with plans for $10/day childcare, a $15 minimum wage, and eventually eliminating MSP fees.
“The BC Liberal legacy is one of skyrocketing costs for families and erosion of core public services like education,” said Joie Warnock, Unifor’s Western Regional Director “On May 9, British Columbians embraced parties that committed to affordability and sustainable job growth.”
