The Sustainabiliteens are organizing participation in the Global Climate Strike being organized for September 27. The following is a message from them, including details of the action in Vancouver. Please note that although terms such as "strike" and "general strike" are being used, there is no legal mechanism which provides the right to strike (i.e. walk off the job) in relation to this action. Therefore, if you intend to participate during regular working hours please consult with your union in advance
