Union resolution

As organizations of working people, unions have a key interest in a provincial housing program. Workers in all areas and economic sectors are affected by high housing costs and low supply of affordable housing. A provincial program to build 200,000 units of publicly owned affordable housing would provide immediate relief to working class families and communities, and create thousands of jobs.
