More than 100 family service workers in Kamloops will be among strikers picketing Thursday around B.C.
The members of the B.C. Government and Service Employees' Union will hit the bricks at Interior Community Services between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at 396 and 765 Tranquille Rd.
There will also be a rally during the noon hour on the Overlanders Bridge.
Picket lines will be up in Vancouver and North Vancouver on Wednesday. Job action takes place in Interior communities on Wednesday.
“Striking workers want to send a clear message to the B.C. government: stop putting the squeeze on family services and other community-based social services,” BCGEU community social services chairperson Patsy Harmston said in a press release.
“Proper government funding is needed for programs for vulnerable families and the workers who support them."
The family services strike follows last week’s strike by 3400 community living workers across British Columbia.
