Mental Health & Unions


Join OrganizeUW graduate student organizers, a CUPE National Health & Safety expert, and a CUPE 3903 (YorkU) local member/bargaining representative as we discuss the opportunities union organizing presents for improving mental health on campus. First the guests will give brief remarks on their perspectives on mental health and related workplace issues, as well as the role of unions to address them in a concrete way. Then the floor will be open for discussion, including questions and concerns from audience members. All are welcome!
