HEU puts election information at your fingertips
Upcoming Guardian, union website provide election tools for HEU members
Health care workers have a huge stake in the outcome of the B.C. election called for May 16.
The upcoming issue of the HEU Guardian — arriving on members’ doorsteps in the next couple of weeks — contains a special Election 2001 pull out section to help you sort out the critical issues confronting union members.
You can find the same information on-line at www.heu.org — just click on the Election Toolkit icon.
- key election issues from an HEU member’s perspective;
- messages from HEU leaders and the B.C. Federation of Labour;
- full-length interviews with Premier Dosanjh and Opposition Leader Campbell;
- the real story on tax cuts plus on-line access to HEU’s video Health Care? Or Tax Cuts?;
- links to political party websites plus other election-related sites;
- list of HEU and CUPE members seeking office;
- how to register to vote; and
- much, much more.
“With B.C.’s major media having all but sworn in Gordon Campbell as premier, many union members feel they have no say in the election outcome,” says HEU secretary-business manager Chris Allnutt.
“Nothing could be further from the truth. Between now and May 16, we have an opportunity to make our mark on the post-election agenda of whichever government is elected.”
Check out the upcoming Guardian and the HEU website to help inform your vote on May 16.
