SLS: Being An Ally for Equality

Championing human rights in the workplace and the union is an important role for stewards. But what does it really mean to be a good ally?

In response to the health concerns of our members and staff, CUPE has implemented a Scent-Free Policy at all of our workshops.  Scented products such as hair spray, perfume and deodorant can trigger reactions such as respiratory distress and headaches.  Facilitators and participants are asked to refrain from using scented products while attending our workshops and meetings.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Please provide in writing by the registration deadline to Collette Calvelli (ccalvelli@cupe.ca) your cancellation request. Please ensure you provide your local number, address and contact numbers.

Note: This workshop is subject to cancellation due to low registration or other reasons.
