Saturday September 28,  IAM delegates from all over British Columbia come together to make Fairness Work for all

 IAM members from LL’s 11,16,456,692,764,1857,and 2711 participated in the CLC’s Together  Fairness Works conference. The leadership from British Columbia worked on understanding the political attacks our union faces today with the current Federal Government. Delegates learned ways to plan out a communication model to ensure all IAM sisters and brothers in the province are aware of  the harmful legislation that is in design by Stephen Harper. The Fairness works Campaign is connected with the IAM Surveys that are currently going out to every IAM member in Canada.

1st Ballot for NDP Leader
Thought on Labour

“This business of petty inconvenience and indignity, of being kept waiting about, of having to do everything at other people’s convenience, is inherent in working-class life. A thousand influences constantly press a working man down into a passive role. He does not act, he is acted upon. He feels himself the slave of mysterious authority and has a firm conviction that ‘they’ will never allow him to do this, that, and the other. Once when I was hop-picking I asked the sweated pickers (they earn something under sixpence an hour) why they did not form a union. I was told immediately that ‘they’ would never allow it. Who were ‘they’? I asked. Nobody seemed to know, but evidently ‘they’ were omnipotent.” ― George Orwell, The Road to Wigan Pier
