On World AIDS Day, CUPE encourages its members to learn more about the AIDS movement, and to continue this important work in their locals.

Actions you can take include:

  • Participate in the UNAIDS Communities make the difference campaign. For World AIDS Day 2019, the United Nations is putting a spotlight on the essential role that communities have played and continue to play in the AIDS response at the international, national and local levels.
  • Attend an Aboriginal AIDS awareness week event in your community. The Canadian AIDS network is highlighting the importance of HIV testing in Indigenous communities.
  • Invite a discussion with members about how HIV/AIDS is a union issue. Use CUPE educational resources, including our HIV/AIDS bookletbargaining checklist, and health and safety fact sheet.
  • Attend or host a World AIDS Day event in your community.
