DECEMBER 6th, The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women


Sisters and Brothers,

It has been over 30 years since the murder of 14 young women at Polytechnique Montréal (December 6, 1989). This act of violent misogyny shook our country and led Parliament to designate December 6 as The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.

Everyone has the right to live free from violence. However, many communities across our country continue to face violence every day because of their gender, gender expression, gender identity or perceived gender. This is referred to as gender-based violence (GBV), and is a violation of human rights.

Take a moment to consider what actions you can take to stand up and support against misogyny, sexism and hate to foster a culture of respect.

The local will be holding a virtual vigil to commemorate the December 6th at 7 pm. The webinar link will be posted on local website.

In Solidarity

Sisters, Brothers, Siblings:

The demands the corporation has put in for Variable Work Week, No Route Ownership, Permanent Flexible Employee’s and major restructuring of letter carrier work are pathetic.

It is time to get ready to stand up in Solidarity and fight! The Toronto Local is strongly opposed to management’s shenanigans and are preparing to battle.  Feet on the street is the only way to win with this employer, the longer the line the shorter the strike.  We need to stop attacking each other and focus on attacking the boss.
