Solidarity Rally at UVic

On September 30th a bunch of representatives from different unions gathered for a solidarity bbq to throw their support behind the striking workers at the University of Victoria's Student Union Buidling.

For five weeks workers in the allegedly student owned and managed student union building have been walking the picket lines in their attempt to secure a living wage. They currently earn less than $10 an hour while their CFS representatives lobby the federal and provincial governments for an increase in the minimum wage and a recent report shows that $12 something per hour is required to live a decent life here in Victoria.
