Local 2002 LGBTQ: Equality and Equity
December 18, 2017
Unifor Local 2002 LGBTQ committee held their first meeting on November 29, 2017 at the Local’s Headquarters in Toronto. Local 2002 President, Euila Leonard welcomed and congratulated the committee for coming together for their first meeting.
Kellie Scanlan – Unifor National liaison and proud LGBTQ member – joined the session and gave a presentation on the recommendations put forward by the National Pride Committee at Canada Council held in August 2017. The committee also reviewed a three-year strategic plan based on those recommendations.
Kevork Vahedjian was selected by his peers as committee chair and will be the primary contact for the Unifor 2002 LGBTQ. The committee is currently working on a communication strategy and will share once established. The local will also have a link for members to sign up to send / receive e-mail and also potentially join this committee in the future.
