B.C. Area Director, Unifor
Gavin McGarrigle is the B.C. Area Director for Unifor and a Vice‐President and Officer at the B.C. Federation of Labour. McGarrigle has represented workers and bargained agreements in many industries, including transit and transportation, with Vancouver’s container truckers, and in aerospace and hospitality. Unifor is Canada’s newest union and largest in the private sector, with more than 305,000 members across the country, working in every major sector of the Canadian economy. The B.C. Federation of Labour represents close to 500,000 members throughout British Columbia and also includes many unions representing transit workers, including ATU, COPE, CUPE and BCGEU.
We can’t afford to buy into a future where all taxes are bad, where our public services are starved of funds, where roads aren’t upgraded, and where transit can’t keep up while congestion increasingly costs us all more time, more money, and more expensive choices down the road.
