Racism

PSAC is committed to fighting racism and promoting employment equity – in the workplaces we represent, within our own union and in society at large. When our members experience discrimination on the job, we file grievances and fight for their rights in the courts and at human rights commissions. Our union also provides opportunities for racially visible PSAC members network and engage in political action.

More than 500 PSAC members from five equity groups and their allies attended the union’s triennial National Equity Conferences in Toronto last month to raise awareness, deepen their knowledge and strategize around issues of discrimination and equality. With the theme “Equality at Work”, the five-day gathering was the second time PSAC held the conferences for all five equity groups simultaneously in one location, allowing for the cross-sharing of issues and perspectives among members from racially visible, GLBT, Aboriginal, women and disability groups and communities.

PSAC stands against the recent Executive Order issued by U.S. President Trump, which temporarily halts all resettlement of refugees to the U.S. and bans nationals of seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the U.S.  We call on the Canadian government and on all Canadians to stand up against this measure, which impacts refugees, temporary residents, and immigrants, based solely on where people come from and on their religion. This is blatant racial discrimination and Islamophobia.
