CWAers in Canada Attend Virtual Training on Building An Anti-Racist Union

In response to the national uprisings following the murder of George Floyd, the CWA Executive Board committed to create dedicated spaces for open dialogue on race for our members and leaders. The discussions will help determine outcomes and clear steps the union must take to fight racism in the union, within the industries we represent, and the community-at-large.

Last week, as part of those efforts, CWA-SCA Canada members attended a virtual training on Building An Anti-Racist Union facilitated by CWA’s National Human Rights Department. Participants engaged in discussions on recognizing implicit bias, understanding the difference between being non-racist and anti-racist, and ways to bring anti-racist practices into their workplaces and locals. The members stated they developed a deeper understanding of how racism affects our union and our ability to build power for working people by organizing across our differences.
