NATIONAL DAY OF REMEMBRANCE AND ACTION ON VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN IN CANADA DECEMBER 6, 2023

Sisters, Brothers and Siblings:

 

It is hard to believe that the violence that happened at the Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal happened 34 years ago, 14 Women were murdered on this day in Montreal because they were Women.  It was a horrific event that we will never forget.

This date is also a time for us to reaffirm our commitment to fight against hatred and misogyny that led to this terrible tragedy.

On this day and every day we must support our Women and learn from our past, listening to survivors and speaking out against harmful behavior.

Our Union is committed to Women’s issues and have created committee’s and harassment Policies in our National Constitution and Local Bylaws.  We take this seriously and read the policy before the start of every meeting. 

In Solidarity,

 

Mark Lubinski,

President,

CUPW Toronto Local.
