United Way, the labour movement and Together Against Poverty Society (TAPS) are teaming up to deliver a new project in Greater Victoria focused on supporting vulnerable, non-unionized, low-wage workers.
TAPS Employment Rights and Education Project will ensure that vulnerable, non-unionized, low-wage workers in the Capital Regional District (CRD) understand their rights as they pertain to the BC Employment Standards Act and receive summary advice and/or representation as required. Together Against Poverty Society is the first and only organization in Greater Victoria to offer such a service.
The project is being supported by a broad coalition of unions and the United Way including: the BC Government Employees Union (BCGEU), Canadian Union of Public Employees BC (CUPEBC), the Greater Victoria Teachers Association (GVTA), UNIFOR, the Professional Employees Association (PEA), the Victoria Labour Council (VLC) and the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC).
