    Workers at TELUS, COMINCO and CBC need our support - BCGEU LABOUR DAY MESSAGE
    Business spokespeople often insist unions are a thing of the past - perhaps necessary once but no longer needed by workers, and certainly not welcome in the competitive global business environment.

    On Labour Day - the one day set aside to honour workers and our contribution to the economy, society and history - it's a good time to reflect on what nonsense this is.

    Thousands of workers in British Columbia are locked out of their workplace or on strike because their employers want more power, or more money. If these workers can win the job security, wage increases and respect they deserve it will only be because they have unions.
