About the Union Protein Project
The Union Protein Project is working to ensure that no child, family or community needs food banks. People need real choices and good jobs that feed them, their families, and their communities.
Food banks in B.C. regularly experience shortages of protein-based food and struggle to ensure that vulnerable people get this key nourishment. Many families are struggling to provide the nourishment that is essential for their health, and children make up 45% of the people relying on B.C. food banks.
Protein is critical to a healthy diet and crucial for mental and physical development. A lack of protein makes it even harder for vulnerable people to improve their lives.
The Union Protein Project subsidizes the cost of protein for food banks allowing them to provide canned fish and peanut butter that many at-risk families just can’t afford. They have helped food banks save precious money and maximize their purchasing power by subsidizing the cost of protein-based foods.

Remembering Bob Derby
Bob Derby was the former Vice-President, Combined Units for MoveUP, then known as COPE 378. Bob spent six years in that role prior to retiring in 2011. He was the sole casualty of a tragic motor vehicle accident in June 2015.
A former mechanic supervisor at the Coast Mountain Bus Company, Bob was a long-time union activist and joined MoveUP’s executive board in 2010 after previously serving as an executive councillor and as job steward. He played a key role in organizing the 2001 transit strike in Greater Vancouver, as well as ordering the shutdown of the entire Surrey Gateway building with pickets after management reneged on a picketing agreement.
Bob’s greatest legacy at MoveUP was building a strong foundation of social events, providing members from all bargaining units and different communities an opportunity to get together in friendly spaces away from both the workplace, and from union business.
Bob did his best to make sure there was something for everybody, from Sun Run teams to summer golf tournaments, to union days at Hastings Racetrack, to hockey, football and baseball games. He also drove the multi-union pride float in the Vancouver Pride Parade.
Bob took his role as social events coordinator very seriously, and his personality was well-suited for it. The gregarious, affable, back-slapping Scotsman was a friendly face at social events and always did his best to make everyone feel welcome.
