Please take a minute to send B.C.’s Health Minister a message today.

Tell government to ensure that its private contractors provide living wages and safe working conditions to the housekeepers and food services workers responsible for keeping our hospitals clean and safe.

Why now?   As you read this, hospital housekeepers and food services workers are in the process of taking this message to their MLAs and health authorities.  They are also bargaining with their multinational employers – Sodexo, Aramark and Compass – for family supporting wages and safe working conditions.   But workers can’t do it alone. Government needs to take steps to ensure their contractors create the wage and working conditions for clean and safe hospitals.  And they need to hear from you.

Living wage successes in the UK, and in hundreds of U.S. cities were achieved because of people like you who took a few minutes to speak out for healthier communities, stronger local economies and quality services.

Send your message today.   Thank you.

P.S. Be sure to check out the new TV ad.   And take a minute to hear the stories of four workers who describe what a living wage would mean to them.
