Rally to Support the Legal Services Society Staff Lawyers
Legal Services Society (LSS) unionized staff lawyers, represented by the Professional Employees Association, issued a 72-hour strike notice on October 28.
The strike will begin on Friday, November 1 with a one-day walkout and picketing, targeting LSS headquarters at 510 Burrard in downtown Vancouver. All legal aid centres throughout the province will remain open.
Allies and media are invited to attend a rally to show support at 12 p.m on November 1 as part of the strike. .
Legal aid staff lawyers do not take their strike vote lightly. They care deeply about British Columbians accessing legal aid, but they are determined to secure a fair and equitable contract with wages that can sustain effective legal aid throughout the province.
