The Racial Justice Committee was created in 1995. Its mandate consists of fighting racism, raising awareness of diversity issues and fostering advancement and opportunity for racialized members within CUPE. It also functions as a liaison with the CUPE National Rainbow Committee.
The committee consists of five positions that are elected at the Ontario Human Rights Conference by the Rainbow Caucus and a chair that is appointed from the Ontario Division executive board.
February 2013 - Black History Month
Sisters and Brothers,
February is Black History Month, and we encourage all members to take this opportunity to reflect on the contributions people of African heritage have made to our country, our society and our union.
CUPE Ontario's Racial Justice Committee plays an important role in making those links. During our annual participation in the Carnival parade, the committee produced and distributed leaflets highlighting the festival's historic ties with slavery and abolition. The committee is also a driving force behind CUPE Ontario's campaign for Employment Equity, a campaign that promotes the inclusion of equity language within collective agreements.
