Library workers – natural champions of democracy!

Below is an article that contains an update from the CUPE BC library committee at BCLA, plus it mentions our very own Fatima Ferreira and Delia Felipescu!

“…this year the committee decided to focus their conference session around library workers as natural champions of democracy – exploring how library workers are inherent champions for democracy, equity, diversity, access to information and literacy.”

VIDC & CUPE BC education opportunities

First of all, sorry for the very short notice.  Tonight at our general union meeting we voted to send up to 4 members total to two education opportunities as follows:

VIDC Leadership Conference June 6-9 in Nanaimo

CUPE BC school May 27-June 1 in Kamloops

If you would like to attend either of these education opportunities please send in your choice via contact form or reply to the email you received no later than 10pm Wednesday May 16th AFTER you have been approved for union leave by your supervisor.  The executive would like to give preference to young workers (under 30) and precarious women workers so please apply if that is you!

If you are selected to attend we will send you the appropriate forms and instructions on Thursday morning.
