Black Lives Matter

NSUPE acknowledges that racism is not just an American issue but a Canadian issue, a provincial issue, a community issue, and a workplace issue. We must work harder to stand up and support those who are discriminated against and put an end to racism. 

I encourage my fellow workers to support the black lives matter movement. I have included some resources below to help those who want to learn and contribute. 

In solidarity,
