Publication Date

Tuesday, October 10, 2017 - 8:30am

The OPSEU Disability Rights Caucus  ("DRC") is inviting OPSEU members with a disability as defined under the Ontario Human Rights Code to apply for a position on the Disability Rights Caucus.

The role of the representative on the Disability Rights Caucus is to raise awareness and understanding of human rights and equity issues as they relate to individuals with disabilities. Representatives will liaise with the respective OPSEU provincial committees to identify barriers that prohibit full participation of persons with disabilities within OPSEU and the broader society.

The Selection Committee will screen the applications and make a recommendation to the Caucus based on the following five considerations:

  •  geographic balance of the seven OPSEU regions
  •  a wide range of disabilities with a balance of visible and non-visible disabilities
  •  mix of community and union activity
  •  gender balance
  •  a desire to network, advocate, educate, and increase equality for individuals with disabilities

Please forward applications to the attention of Marg Smoke at [email protected] (with the subject line: "DRC Application") or fax to 416-448-7419 no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, October 20, 2017.
