Oct 25, 2020 - Justice and Dignity for All

When: Sunday October 25th, 4pm

CUPW is proud to share its latest documentary, Justice and Dignity for All: Stories from the Struggle for Pay Equity, and invites all members to a special premiere screening of the film on Sunday, October 25th at 4 pm ET on Zoom.

This is the inspiring tale of the forty-year effort by the Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers to gain the most significant pay equity settlement in Canadian history - from poverty wages and no benefits, to more respect and dignity at the workplace.

Among the many proud achievements of CUPW in its long history, the unionization of RSMCs in 2003, and the pay equity agreement the Union forced from a reluctant employer two years ago, are among our proudest.

Oct 27, 2020 - Global Black Resistance

When: Tuesday October 27th, 2pm

Through direct action, art interventions, protests, rallies and other forms of mobilization, Black people globally are resisting state sanctioned violence and anti-Black racism in all spheres. The status quo is no longer viable. Black feminists are (re)building a world for us, by us. This panel features freedom fighters advocating for justice across the globe. In this session, we will be sharing the different (and similar) human rights priorities are for Black people working in movements in different countries and examining the elements needed for greater and more effective international solidarity among peoples of African descent -- particularly as we collectively confront the challenges of the ongoing global pandemic.
