National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 30 is National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. It is a day to remember and honour the Indigenous children stolen from their families and communities and sent to residential schools and it is a day to stand in solidarity with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. It’s important that we all reflect on actions we can take to be strong allies in our workplaces, unions, and communities.

Today is a day for non-Indigenous peoples to learn about Canada’s colonial past and take meaningful action to move towards reconciliation.

As a CUPE 951, it’s important for us to stand in solidarity with all workers. Indigenous workers want and deserve what every worker wants: safe and decent work and wages, and to be treated with dignity and fairness in the workplace.

Join us in telling decision-makers we want to see concrete action towards justice for Indigenous communities.
