CEP national convention

CEP national convention next week
VANCOUVER, B.C. - CEP Western Region Vice-President Dave Coles will open the convention on Sunday at 9:45 a.m. Delegates will debate dozens of resolutions including a call for the Canadian government to withdraw from all military operations in Afghanistan, unless sanctioned by the UN; to make trade policy more democratic; and to implement a public pharmacare program. Other resolutions call on CEP to renew efforts to save jobs through reduced working time; to build on organizing breakthroughs such as those with Metis and First Nations workers; and to help Locals become more politically active.
