The Equity Unit provides advice, research and support in the following key areas:

For provincial and regional committees and caucuses on issues related to women, people with disabilities, workers of colour, Aboriginal workers, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender/transsexual, intersex, asexual, queer, questioning and two spirited (LGBTTIAQQ2S) workers, francophones and young workers.
  2. In collaboration with OPSEU’s Equity Committees and Caucuses and the Member Education Unit, the Equity Unit also plans equity-themed conferences over the course of the calendar year.
  3. To members in relation to member to member harassment and discrimination complaints.
  4. To members and staff in relation to human rights and equity issues at the local level.
