WHISTLER—The region’s transit workers and their supporters will gather in Whistler Village on the Family Day weekend to send B.C. Transit a message that workers and community members are united.
“Transit workers help connect our communities and keep the economy moving,” said Gavin McGarrigle, Unifor Western Regional Director. “It’s time B.C. Transit recognize the important work done by transit workers in the Sea to Sky corridor.”
“Whistler is a playground for the wealthy—but it relies on the working people in restaurants, hotels, and other retail businesses in this village. Those same working people have B.C. Transit to thank for their lack of public transit during the height of ski season,” said McGarrigle.
What: Community rally for striking transit workers

“This Family Day weekend, we’re asking all families in Squamish, Whistler, and Pemberton to join us to demand better from B.C. Transit,” concluded McGarrigle.
