Join us for a discussion of how anti-racism work and unions work together to create a more just workplace and society, hosted by the Organize uWaterloo committee and CUPE. The webinar will start with presentations of related information and personal experiences and then we will switch to a Q&A panel discussion. A primary aim of the discussion is to envision how our (soon-to-be-formed) local union might engage in anti-racism work through bargaining, activism, and solidarity with ongoing efforts.
