March 21st – International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

This year’s theme for the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is: “Racial profiling and incitement to hatred, including in the context of migration.”

Refugees and migrants are particular targets of racial profiling and incitement to hatred. From a Union’s perspective, it is our responsibility to enforce a zero tolerance approach through education and working with our members and communities, as well as fighting injustice and racial discrimination in our workplaces, communities and around the world.

At CEIU, we proudly represent the workers at the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB), including the decision makers in refugee hearings, as well as the workers of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women’s Day, held its first celebration as a Socialist political event on March 8th, 1909, in New York City (NYC). Women marched the streets of NYC demanding labour rights.
Until women are fully represented at senior executive levels of the public service, as well as within our own internal union representation, we do not have equal rights or an equal voice.
This International Women’s Day, let us consider how we, sisters and brothers, can make a difference, and be part of the change we want to see. Let us celebrate acts of courage and determination, which have played an extraordinary role in our union, workplace, and communities.
