Please see below for an important message from CUPE’s National Safe Union Spaces Working Group.
MARK HANCOCK National President
CHARLES FLEURY National Secretary-Treasurer
Earlier this year, CUPE created a National Safe Union Spaces Working Group to address serious concerns about gender-based violence and other forms of harassment and discrimination in our union.
Our work is being guided by expert external consultants. The external consultants will be holding a series of focus groups to help CUPE review our existing tools and processes, and identify gaps where we need changes or additional resources to ensure safer union spaces for all members.
Some of the sessions are being held specifically for members of our equity-seeking groups. Members are welcome to attend the session for any group that they identify as a member of, and all members are welcome in the general sessions.
Focus groups will take place on Zoom. Please use the following links to register for the session you wish to attend.
