The Executive Council of the BC Federation of Labour has voted to endorse statements by the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) and the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) regarding the ongoing crisis in Gaza, the West Bank and Israel. This includes the call for an immediate, permanent ceasefire; the release of all hostages and others held without due judicial process; and full respect for international humanitarian law.
The BCFED condemns hate in all its forms. We join the ITUC and CLC in our support for a just and lasting peace.
The CLC is the national voice of the labour movement in Canada, and the ITUC is the largest trade union federation in the world. The BC Federation of Labour is affiliated to both organizations and supports their ongoing work to support workers in the region.
