An international conference of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans union activists Montreal, Que., July 26-29, 2006
CUPE members, including the pink triangle committee, will be showing their pride at the Workers Out! Making the Difference conference conference in Montreal this week.
Workers Out! hopes to develop an international strategic plan to help unions worldwide in taking up the struggle for LGBT rights in the workplace and in society.
The event is part of a broader conference on LGBT human rights, which in turn is a major component of the 1st World Outgames, an international gathering of LGBT athletes and artists and their supporters taking place in Montreal at the same time.
Workers Out! Making the Difference was organized by labour organizations in Canada and Quebec, including the Confédération des syndicats nationaux, the Centrale des syndicats du Québec, the Canadian Labour Congress and the Fédération des travailleurs et travailleuses du Québec.
