Vancouver – June 12, 2020 – Communications workers at Point Blank Creative are the newest members of UFCW 1518 after voting unanimously to join the union.
Staff at the company’s B.C. office, located in downtown Vancouver, made history with their union drive by participating in the province’s first fully digital union certification vote.
