National Day of Remembrance and Action to End Violence Against Women

The Toronto Public Library Workers Union commits to the ongoing fight to end violence against women, including our murdered and missing Indigenous women. As a step in this direction, our union recently negotiated a paid leave for victims of domestic or sexual abuse.

From CUPE National:

On December 6, we mark the anniversary of the 1989 École Polytechnique massacre, where 14 women were singled out and murdered because of their gender. One of those women, Maryse Laganière, was a CUPE member who worked at the school.

On this day, we join with millions of Canadians, in unions and organizations of all kinds, to encourage our members to learn more, bargain and take action.

Kind words - deeply appreciated - but I'm only one of so many passionate folks advocating a better way for us all during these challenging days - working together we can achieve anything @CUPEOntario https://twitter.com/JdnKachur/status/1380213424093810689
