    Job Action in the Kootenays Sends Clear Message to Campbell Government — Negotiate, Not Legislate - BC Federation of Labour dated Wednesday Oct. 19
    'Job action today by union members in the Kootenays sends a clear message to the Campbell government to negotiate, not legislate,' said B.C. Federation of Labour President Jim Sinclair.

    Thousands of private and public sector union members were off the job today in the East and West Kootenays to protest Bill 12.

    'From mines, to mills, to municipal halls -- the tremendous demonstration of the labour movement today should not be ignored by the Liberal government,' Sinclair said. 'There is an opportunity here for some real bargaining to take place and I strongly encourage the government to take it.'

    Sinclair thanked the East and West Kootenay Labour Councils for their hard work in ensuring today's protests were a success.
