Help us get paid sick leave for BC workers!

The Covid-19 pandemic has made it clear that sick pay for all workers in BC is vital for the health of our workplaces and communities.

It's time for BC workers to have job-protected paid sick leave. We can't afford to wait for another outbreak.

The good news is that Premier John Horgan has said he wants to see paid sick leave. And Prime Minister Trudeau recently announced temporary partial support for workers. But there’s more to do. Workers need a permanent plan to make our workplaces healthier and safer in the long run. 

Now it's time to act. Sign the letter, and tell the BC and federal governments you support permanent paid sick leave for all workers.
