The Coalition of Racialized Workers (CORW) is working to extend the work of the Committee across OPSEU/SEFPO’s regions. We would like to invite all racialized members in Regions 4, 6, & 7 to join us as we create these regional chapters.
Creating these regional chapters is a part of the CORW’s strategic work plan. It is to engage racialized OPSEU/SEFPO members and it is also in alignment with the OPSEU/SEFPO Social Mapping Project (SMP). The SMP recognizes that in order to create an inclusive union for Ontario’s increasingly diverse workforce, the identification and removal of all barriers to participation must be the Union’s priority.
If you live or work in the communities of the above-mentioned regions and you believe in the vision of the Coalition, we invite you to submit an application as soon as possible but no later than 5pm on September 29, 2023. In your application, we ask that you also showcase your past and current work and interests in working with racialized communities by completing the form below.
The CoRW seeks to truly represent members who identify as Black and Racialized. It is especially important now more than ever to organize to further these actions, especially where the society takes a “colour blind” approach to racism and this only serves to further marginalize vulnerable communities and precarious workers. We must take the lead in building a multi-racial, anti-racist response to political, economic, and social agendas that continue to perpetuate these practices.
Please complete the form below, no later than 5pm on September 29, 2023.
