A highlight of the CCU Executive Board meeting from June 23 to 24, 2018 in Castlegar, British Columbia was keynote speaker Len Embree. Brother Len is a founding member of the Pulp, Paper and Woodworkers of Canada (currently the Public and Private Workers of Canada), a former member of the Construction, Maintenance and Allied Workers (CMAW) and the former president of the British Columbia Provincial Council of Carpenters (BCPCC).
As brother Len would always say: “The labour movement was never founded for dollars and cents, but for people to be treated with a degree of dignity.” Thank you for speaking to the Confederation of Canadian Unions, Len Embree. You are a working class hero.
Special thanks to CCU treasurer Scarlett Farquhar for the video and audio.
