Every February CUPE members across the country take time to recognize contributions made by Canadians of African origin to our union and our country.

CUPE national president Paul Moist and national secretary-treasurer Claude Généreux recently issued a letter to CUPE organizations discussing the importance of the occasion.

CUPE celebrates Black History Month as part of our commitment to promoting an active and inclusive union that values every member,” said Moist and Généreux. “Black members in our union play a key role in fighting for equality in the workplace.”

Events will be taking place across the country. We invite you to let us know what you, your local or your division is doing to celebrate Black History Month. Please send us information about your events, your photographs and tell us what Black History Month means to you to equality@cupe.ca.

Over the next few weeks we’ll post these contributions here on the website.

Keep an eye on CUPE.ca for updates!
