Starting a Conversation: Transit, Community and the Power of a Strike with Kristin Pulles and Eric Solland

October 28 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

What can we achieve when unions and communities align to fight for climate justice?

Join Eric Solland (ATU Local 1722) and Kirstin Pulles (MA Student, Community Engagement, Social Change, and Equity) to learn more about the recent transit strike in Kelowna. ATU Local 1722 won a key moment in their fight for fairness, but their work isn’t over. Local climate activists and the transit union intend to work together for a funded, fair, and publicly managed transit system for Canada’s fastest growing city.

This is a hybrid event, and everyone is welcome.

Please join us either in-person (Arts 368) or via Zoom.
