Why is this important to workers?
Working people are the backbone of our economy in Metro Vancouver, and we know you care deeply about our economic future. Voting Yes will make our economy more competitive by ensuring goods and people can move around our region safely and efficiently.
Voting Yes also means protecting our environment, improving air quality, cutting emissions and helping us meet the challenges of climate change.
Your union’s leaders, many other unions in the Lower Mainland, and the BC Federation of Labour have voted to join the historic coalition made up of students, trade union members, local business owners, environmental and faith groups, academics and more, all connected by a vision of accessible, reliable public transit for everyone. We support the plan laid out by the Mayors’ Council, and are urging you to vote Yes in the upcoming referendum. Voting No means years more of delays, while costs and congestion increases.
This referendum is our opportunity to solve the transit challenges we face right now, and plan for the future. We can’t afford to miss this chance to do the right thing for our communities, our economy and our environment. Please vote Yes in the upcoming referendum.
