BC FERRY & MARINE WORKERS’ UNION ARE ASKING FOR A FAIR DEAL
We are here today to make you aware that this golf tournament is
being paid for on the backs of the unionized workforce at BC Ferries.
BCFMWU are currently in negotiations with BC Ferries for a moderate
wage increase for April 1, 2011 and 2012.
BC Ferries have said they have no money to pay an increase to their
unionized employees. In fact, they don’t want to negotiate a wage
increase and are demanding that the employees pay for part of their
BCFS has money to pay for large pensions and raises for management
including one that took effect July 1, 2011 yet nothing for their
most valued resource, their employees.
We are aware of the current economic conditions but that hasn’t
stopped BCFS from advertising at Canuck games, sponsoring golf
tournaments and other promotions.
This is insulting to our members who helped BC Ferries achieve its
highest Customer Satisfaction rating in BC Ferries history.
If BC Ferries ever wants to crack the top 50 Companies, which is
employee and public rated, they are heading in the wrong direction.
Wouldn’t you be teed off if your employer treated you this way?
