Good Day Everyone,


Our Brothers & Sisters of BCGEU Local 1707 have reached out to us with the following and we need to show our support.


Hello everyone! We are reaching out to unions across the Okanagan on behalf of the BCGEU Local 1707. 

As you may already know, we are currently on strike for a fair living wage, comprehensive benefits, and general respect from our employer. 

This Saturday July 21, we are holding a solidarity picket to show our employer that we have the support of not only our members, but also our communities.

Start times for the pickets will be staggered across the 4 locations as we would like to arrange for shuttles and carpools to other locations as well. Times are as follows;

Kamloops – 12:00 pm

Vernon – 3:00 pm

Kelowna – 5:30 pm

Penticton – 8:00 pm

We will have a BBQ, games and draws, prizes and plenty of solidarity to go around. This is your opportunity to show support to the members of your community, and get informed on the strike action. 

We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday. 


Fraternally Yours,

ATU 1722 Executive Board
