CUPE 2278 hosts “We are Wisconsin” film event

CUPE 2278, Teaching Assistants at UBC, hosted a film screening and panel discussion on March 10.  They screened the film “We are Wisconsin” that documents events in Madison in early 2011 when a newly-elected Republican governor tried to destroy collective bargaining for public employees.  Panelists discussed both what happened in Wisconsin and ongoing attacks on Canadian Labour by the Harper and BC Liberal govern­ments.
