It's time to invest in strong public services.

Public workers deliver services our communities rely on in challenging times.

Whether it’s fighting wildfires, protecting at-risk children, staffing the court system, or running liquor and cannabis stores, the B.C. public service is there for us.

But as the cost of living skyrockets, these workers are falling behind.

Now is the time to invest in sustainable public services, for our future

BCGEU members are pushing for strong public services at the bargaining table. More than 64,000 members from a variety of public sectors, such as the B.C. public service, community social services, health care, and post-secondary education, are negotiating new collective agreements this year. They’re working towards collective agreements that address the rising cost-of-living and treat them with dignity and respect. 

Our province’s ability to respond to and recover from today’s challenges relies on public services and the workers who deliver them. Stronger, safer, more sustainable public services are a choice and necessity. Governments can find the money when they choose to. That’s why the BCGEU is calling on the government to choose strong public services in this round of collective agreement bargaining.

A groundswell of public support could show the government that B.C. voters want them to invest in strong public services. Will you add your name to support stronger, safer, more sustainable public services?

The pandemic has proven public service workers are the glue that holds us together. It has shone a spotlight on how critically important public service workers are to British Columbians. These workers have faced very challenging circumstances and need to be recognized.
