The BC Election is just around the corner and I am not hearing enough about the changes the NDP are going to make when they get in. They are, by my opinion just an extension of the BC Labour Movement, manifest as a political party.
The Province newspaper ran a story about the BC Federation of Labour’s plans for their future in BC. There was a document that outlined it for the reader – “What do we want to achieve together as a BC labour movement during 2012.” Sadly, the Province (BC’s equivalent to the Toronto Star) did not keep the document up there, or the story, that I can tell.
It was interesting and informative:
It looks like the BC fed got themselves a writer!! Anyway, you didn't think I would go through all of that and not actually be able to produce the thing did you? Here for your reading pleasure is the BC Federation of labour explaining what they want to achieve together as a BC labour movement. Summary of Open Discussion Ideas.This document Was produced by 35 affiliate leaders and senior staff, meeting for a full day to address the question "What do we want to achieve together as a BC labour movement during 2012?” The participants worked In Open Space Technology, self-organizing a working agenda and self selecting the workshops. They treated this as an incubator for ideas and strategies, to be fed in as enrichment of the formal decision-making structures of the Federation. Notes were taken by Federation staff.
