Anti-Black Racism in workplaces and Trade unions

April 27, 2021 @ 6:30 pm 8:30 pm

A discussion of how employers and unions perpetuate anti-Black racism and systemic discrimination, and how people fight back.

The forum will examine the Black class action lawsuit recently filed against the federal public service for decades of systemic discrimination, and will shed light on current research into the path-breaking 1990s case (documented in the Lynn Jones Heritage Collection) against intersecting grounds of discrimination in the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), which are unresolved into the present.
