It would be fascinating to know what reaction the BC Libs get from Falcon throwing out Rustad.  My guess is that among people who bother to respond it would be almost entirely negative.  Too much like Trudeau punishing people for having “unacceptable opinions.”  Whether it will cause a ripple in the general population I have no idea.  We seem generally prepared to accept almost any dictatorial decree from politicians these days (though the museum fiasco was a notable exception.)  But at this point it looks to me like an own goal.

Well, assuming the BCGEU ratifies this, that should start a domino effect of collective agreements/bargaining:

https://www.timescol...ernment-5789522

  • Year 1 – effective April 1, increase all rates of pay by 25 cents per hour and then increase all rates of pay by 3.24 per cent.
  • Year 2 – Effective April 1, 2023, increase rates of pay by the annualized average of B.C. Consumer Price Index over 12 months starting on March 1, 2022 to a minimum of 5.5 per cent and a maximum of 6.75 per cent.
  • Year 3 - Effective April 1, 2024, increase rates of pay by the annualized average of B.C. Consumer Price Index over 12 months starting on March 1, 2023, to a minimum of two per cent and a maximum of three per cent.

It feels like the union gave up more than the employer.

That doesn’t look like much more than originally offered.

Its up to 2% more. Not huge, but it IS more. The minimum pay increase is close to what the maximum previous offer would have been.

I guess. It seems overly complicated. I guess so both sides can looks like they won.

In my 30+ years with the Public Service, I never really witnessed the union playing hardball.

98% of the response I’ve seen to this so far has been outrage and calling it insulting. Will be curious to see if membership ratifies it or not.

There will be some short lived outrage, but I'd be surprised if the offer isn't accepted. I doubt many people want to go on strike.

That's what I'm hearing too. It could be a close vote. The grid reclassifications may make enough members happy to vote it in.

But they cap rent increases at 2%.  talk about hypocrisy!  I guess landlords are not the NDP's union friends!

Grace Lore has since deleted this post.

The shirt maker describes the intent behind the shirt as “bring out the knives if necessary” to protect trans kids.

The only knives being brought out around trans kids is to remove their breasts and penises. There is no such thing as a trans minor.

I’ll stop by and say hi if we end up in the same re-education camp.

The question I have, is why delete the original post? If it’s only meant to entice people to carefully vet school trustee candidates, why remove it?

Because the intent wasn’t to shine a light on the SOGI 123 as a school board election issue. The goal is disengagement… This was a virtue signal gone wrong.

The goal is to murder those who disagree with you, or not? I don’t know, and neither do the rest of us. The MLA deleted the post and followed up with a suggestion for people to research school board candidates.

If you wear a hammer and sickle shirt, are you supporting an ideology that hinged on genocide, mass murder, concentration camps and oppression, or encouraging people to vet candidates?
