Religious Observances

OPSEU is committed to the principle of freedom of religion and upholding the right to equal treatment on the basis of creed.  In recognition of these rights and principles, which include respect for religious beliefs, practices and observances, the Equity Unit has compiled a calendar of religious observances in 2013.  Major religious celebrations, which represent the holiest time of the year for many worshipers, have also been highlighted.  While the list is not exhaustive, it does provide guidelines to assist in planning and scheduling OPSEU meetings, activities and events. To encourage inclusion and full participation, consideration should be given when scheduling events that could fall around these times.

* It should also be noted that there are many other forms of religions and traditions that may fall outside the scope of the religious calendar we have provided.

Human Rights and Equity Calendar

Key human rights and equity dates have been compiled into a calendar to highlight members’ priority issues and to draw attention to events of significance to OPSEU members, the Equity Unit, and equity committees and caucuses. The dates promote the achievements of the labour movement, and human rights and community organizations who have worked proactively to defend and improve members’ rights and working conditions. The dates also serve as a guideline for planning events and activities locally, regionally, and in the community.
