In 2021, postcards were created by a coalition seeking equal pay for employees of un-unionized non-profit organization serving families. They were sent to members of the provincial government to send the message that Community Social Service Workers in BC deserve equal pay and that you would like to see the #EqualPayBC issue resolved. A hearing occurred at the Labour Relations Board on Sept. 20, 2021 and the results were reported in the spring of 2022. The bid was unsuccessful.
