Smart meters mean job losses

BC Hydro’s conversion to smart meters has led to concerns being raised about health and privacy impacts, and potential damage to appliances during the installation of the devices.

Now a local union is raising a new concern: job losses.

David Black, president of Local 378 of the Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union, said in a letter to Burnaby city council that nearly 400 meter readers across the province, which it represents, will lose their jobs as a result.
