- This event has passed.
In solidarity with people around the planet who will participate in the upcoming Global Climate Strike, we have invited all Kootenay Co-op staff to take part in the Nelson BC, “Fridays for Future” event on Friday, September 20th from 10:30am to 1:00pm.
Kootenay Co-op staff, Board of Directors, and Management recognize that we have a responsibility to use our voice in the community to stand up for Climate Action. Therefore, the Board of Directors and management voted to allow scheduled staff to participate in “Fridays for Future” with full pay.
A contingent of Co-op staff will leave work at 1030 and walk together with board members and family members to the rally point at City Hall. In order to serve our members and honour those who wish to work, the Co-op will remain open with much fewer staff and some impact on services.
We hope you will join us in taking immediate steps for climate action.
