Good news everyone! I have been in touch with Councillor Raymond Louie. He was able to have a motion passed at the last Vancouver council meeting, that \"any tax savings incurred in this labour dispute be used to reduce property taxes for City taxpayers in 2008.\" It looks like our money won\'t be wasted! Thank you very much for your support! I will send all of the signatures that this petition has collected so far to Councillor Louie, to ensure that our voices continue to be heard. Please check out the minutes of the council meeting to see how the debate played out. http://vancouver.ca/ctyclerk/cclerk/20070724/documents/regmins.pdf

Cheryl Stapleton, Canada7 years ago Comments: I not only lost services for the property taxes I paid in 2007, but I also lost 12 weeks of wages. As a contracted employee with the City of Vancouver for 8 years, I am not in any union, did not qualify for strike pay and I am in the process of appealing EI as they also say I'm not eligible.
