Emancipation Day

July 31, 2020

Racism lives here in Canada. Since April, nine Black, Indigenous, or racialized people in Canada have been killed during interactions with police. 

We were all horrified and outraged by the murder of George Floyd in the United States. As trade unionists in Canada, we cannot ignore the deadly threat racism poses to our Black, Indigenous, and racialized sisters, brothers, and friends north of the border.

We must do more than speak up against it, we must work together to abolish Racism. 

August 1 is Emancipation Day. It is currently only recognized in Ontario, but to make this day a truly meaningful commemoration, the entire country needs to join in. This day also affirms our union’s collective demand for racial justice and, to paraphrase Angela Davis, enables us to no longer accept the things we cannot change but change the things we cannot accept.

We are all aware that the trade union movement was built by working people determined to achieve social justice and equity in our workplaces and in our communities. Our greatest progress has come when we have understood the importance of combating discrimination and uniting all workers.

In solidarity,

Jerry Dias,

National President
