February is Black History Month. This year’s theme is "The Future is Now” and is an opportunity to recognize the transformative work Black Canadians and communities are doing.
After working more than 50 years to make life better for workers across Ontario, 1006A Director Roland Lapins has retired.
We are human beings. That’s what steward Valrie Francis hopes people understand about BLM. The fact that Valrie needed to remind people of our common humanity also speaks to the tremendous work that still needs to be done.
