    BCGEU joins forces with ironworkers in Vancouver protest - National Union of Public and General Employees, Canada
    The British Columbia Government and Service Employees' Union (BCGEU/NUPGE) joined forces this week with the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Ironworkers to protest the replacement of Canadian workers with low-wage recruits from other countries.

    Jim Sinclair, president of the B.C. Federation of Labour, said any genuine labour shortages should be addressed by bringing in new workers as potential full citizens of Canada and not as 'second-class citizens to be sent home once the job was over.'

    'We know what the companies are doing; they want cheap labour - we all get it - but the fundamental issue here is the government of Canada should be bringing people in to build our nation, not to exploit them,' said Sinclair.
