Aboriginal and Workers of Colour Conference

May 5, 2017 - 7:00 PM to May 7, 2017 - 12:00 PM

Progressive visions of an inclusive future are being challenged in the current political climate. Activists across the world are fighting back, building bridges to other equity seeking groups and providing an opportunity to recreate broad social movements that can respond to the threat to take away gains that have been hard won. Across the country, Aboriginal Workers and Workers of Colour are building our union, strengthening the labour movement and working for social justice.

Recognizing that solidarity is the key to building a unified working class and that disparity doesn’t disappear because it is ignored, this year’s conference theme is “Challenges, Renewal and Progress”.

Join together with us, to engage in creative workshops, cultural activities, networking opportunities and challenging discussion about our workplaces, our union and our world. We will hear the results of our Equity Audit and we will strategize about inclusive paths forward.

The conference is intended to inspire and motivate our members to fight for substantive equality and for political, economic and social justice, and challenge inequality and racism wherever they encounter it. It will also provide a safe space for members to share and skills, and solidify confidence to enable them to continue the fight for justice in their workplaces and in their communities.

Our union’s commitment to the principles of human rights and equality can only be met with the enthusiastic participation and involvement of our leadership and activists. Please ensure women and young Aboriginal Workers & Workers of Colour activists are in your delegation.

Please make every effort to send delegates (leadership, political activists and benefit representatives) to this important conference.
