CLBC executive bonuses expose government’s double standard

Vote YES for a strong strike mandate
Bargaining bulletin
Bargaining Bulletins

The provincial government has given community social services workers another strong motivation to attend strike vote meetings being held around B.C.

Inflation is driving up the cost of living. The price of a litre of gas has climbed by 43 per cent since our last pay raise. Bread is up more than 11 per cent and milk more than 10 per cent. 

These are not the only double digit increases though.

 Last week news broke that senior executives at Community Living British Columbia are receiving huge bonuses/wage increases. 

Frontline workers are expressing outrage that these ten per cent bonuses are being handed to the senior managers responsible for mismanaging community living services and who have created the current crisis. 

A strong strike mandate will send a message that this double standard has to stop. 

It’s important that members attend strike vote meetings and vote yes to give the bargaining committee the strong mandate it needs.

The following meetings are being held this week:
