Aboriginal Workers of Colour

UNIFOR

  
We would like to acknowledge that the land on which the Unifor Local 2002 Office is located is part of the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. 
 
In particular, we acknowledge the territory of the Anishinabek, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee, and Ojibway/Chippewa peoples; the land that is home to the Metis; and most recently, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation who are direct descendants of the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, these lands are home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples.
 
We respectfully acknowledge the ancestral homelands in other provinces whose territories we may be meeting from today.
 
We are grateful to have the opportunity to be learning, organizing, and working on traditional lands and by doing so, give our respect to elders both past, present and future.

Unifor Local 2002 Aboriginal and Workers of Colour Committee has been established to:

Promote Inclusivity where Members who represent themselves as Aboriginal or Worker of Colour feel Valued, Respected and Safe to be their Authentic Self,

Promote Equity where members are treated Fairly and Impartially,

Promote Social Justice where Aboriginal and Workers of Colour Members should have equal opportunity which is fair and free from Bias, equal Treatment which is free of Prejudice, Fair and Proper Administration of laws which are free of any form of Discrimination and Overt Racism.

United under the Principles and Leadership of Unifor Local 2002, the Committee will fight and seek to achieve Fairness for the Aboriginal and Workers of Colour Members.

We will strive to engage the Members in our fight against any form of Discrimination and Racism and will spread this message to our workplaces, the other Unifor Locals and the Society at Large.
