The CUPE Ontario Racial Justice Committee is committed to racial justice, inclusion and equality in the workplace and in our communities. Its mandate consists of fighting for fairness, including challenging racism and all forms of oppression, on behalf of all racialized CUPE members.

The committee aims to build strong relationships with community organizations and coalitions, including organizing a presence in cultural events like Caribbean Carnival.

The committee consists of five positions that are elected at the Ontario Human Rights Conference by the Racialized Workers Caucus, a chair that is elected within the Racial Justice Committee and a Diversity VP who is an executive board liaison for the committee.


February is Black History Month, and CUPE Ontario encourages 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.
