Civil and Human Rights Committee


Our members reflect the diversity of Canada. We celebrate differences and believe that everyone is entitled to a workplace that is free from discrimination, regardless of race, religion, gender, age, status or sexual orientation.

Our union helped achieve legislation and regulations that provide for equal pay, anti-harassment protection and employment equity provisions.
