PSAC North Regional Council

Racially Visible Committee

 

We promote union actions on issues affecting racially visible members by: 

  • Educating, politicizing and mobilizing racially visible members by making links between themselves, the union, the workplace and the community.
  • Empowering, uniting and engaging racially visible members to take action and move the Human Rights Agenda forward
  • Encouraging networking and open communication among racially visible members, the PSAC National Human Rights Committee and other PSAC National/Regional bodies.

Join our growing team

We participate in conferences, education and training programs on issues that affect racially visible members. 

We are relied upon for representation of racially visible members, their issues and equality goals in the various union bodies, programs and social justice groups. 

We sit on the National Human Rights Committee and other PSAC National and Regional bodies … and much more.

Make a difference

Some of our work is focused on reviewing, discussing and making recommendations on issues, policies, strategies and initiatives that affect racially visible members. 

We also keep our eye on legislation, provisions or practices that are discriminatory and recommend union policies, programs or actions that will end and redress the discrimination and racism. 

Join our committee and pursue your area of interest. There is room for everyone who wants to make a difference. We welcome your contribution!

Jack Bourassa Regional Executive Vice President, PSAC North By now many labour organizations across the country have spoken out in condemnation of the acts that we all witnessed in Charlottesville, Virginia on Aug. 12. Given the tight-knit and diverse nature of our own community, I feel as REVP at PSAC North that we must not only denounce in the strongest terms what occurred, but moving forward, tackle the lingering impact of that weekend.

Since the Conservatives took power in 2006 under Stephen Harper’s leadership, the federal government has been constantly attacking human rights and equity through a series of legislative changes and cuts to programs and services. Cuts contained in the 2012 and 2013 federal budgets, along with other recent legislation, have had a particularly harsh impact on equity-seeking groups, including racially visible people.
