Media Advisory - Unifor to comment on BC Speech from the Throne

VICTORIA, Feb. 11, 2014 /CNW/ - Unifor Western Director Scott Doherty will be available for comment following the delivery of the BC Speech from the Throne.

"British Columbians want good jobs with decent benefits. So far, the premier's jobs plan hasn't delivered on her big promises," said Doherty. "The premier has relied on weaving a fantasy about the benefits of fracking or pipelines that bleed jobs. We want to see a broader vision of job creation grounded in reality."

      When: February 11 at approximately 3:00 PM
       
      Where: BC Legislature Lobby, Victoria
       
      Who: Scott Doherty, Unifor Western Region Director

Unifor was founded Labour Day weekend 2013 when the Canadian Auto Workers and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers unions merged. With more than 300,000 members, Unifor is Canada's largest union in the private sector.
