CUPE 23 is proud to recognize February as Black History month. CUPE 23 would like to emphasize that the contributions of Black Canadians have been an integral part of both British Columbian and Canadian history, which we encourage everyone to celebrate year-round.
Black History within Canada is ever evolving; we at CUPE 23 strive to be a positive part of that evolution by promoting a fair, safe, and equal workplace where members are free from systemic barriers, harassment, and discrimination. We encourage our members to promote these principles and to stand up to Anti-black racism not just this month, but everyday.
