Addressing Anti-Black Racism in Ottawa

Unifor Local 2025, PSAC and several other partners/donors contributed to the release of this report which is worth reading.

The report is only available in English at the moment.

Unifor 2025 Executive

Here is the report of the Local 2025 Elections Committee with information about the results of the February 9, 2017 elections.

My thanks to the Committee for all their work.

Rachel Besharah, President

Comrades,

We would like to thank and congratulate our newly acclaimed Unifor Local 2025 Executive members as follows:

On October 20 to 23, Abudi Awaysheh a member of our local in Vancouver, attended the Canadian Labour Congress’ 2nd National Human Rights Convention titled “Rise Up! 2016 – Live the Change” in Ottawa. Over one thousand people were in attendance, including guests from Canada’s Territorial and Provincial Federations of Labour, as well as Delegates and elected Union leaders from every National, Provincial and Territorial Union across the country, including many Unifor locals.

Du 22 au 26 août 2016, les membres Omar Burgan, Rachel Besharah et Wael Afifi (délégué suppléant) ont assisté au Congrès national d’Unifor à Ottawa à titre de personnes déléguées de la section locale 2025. Plus de 2000 personnes déléguées des quatre coins du pays s’y sont rassemblées pour procéder à l’élection du nouveau Conseil exécutif, discuter des résolutions soumises et assister à diverses allocutions de conférenciers.

It's Time - Unifor Convention 2016

Dear members,

I’m writing to share with you a video that summarizes the proceedings of our recent Convention:

https://youtu.be/hsl1uUM0Eds

If you were a delegate, thank you for helping to make it one of the most inspiring union events I’ve ever attended.

If you were unable to attend, I encourage you to watch the video and share with your friends and family. Unifor has grown so much in three years, and emerging from this convention your union is well positioned to continue to be one of the most powerful and progressive organizations in the country.

CULE and SEESOCQ have invited the members of Unifor 2025 to a noon time rally in front of 233 Gilmour next week on Tuesday September 13th.

This rally is in support of Sisters Nancy LaRose and Lisa Rossignol who were both recently terminated by the PSAC while on Injury on Duty Leave.

This is a timely action as the Alliance Executive Board (AEC) will be meeting that day.

I look forward to seeing you there.

In solidarity,

Rachel Besharah

President, Unifor Local 2025
