CUPE Saskatchewan celebrates Pride 2021

June is Pride month in many communities across Saskatchewan – a time to celebrate our LGBTQ2+ members and renew our resolve to advance and organize for equality in the workplace and in the community. Many of the events usually held in-person to celebrate Pride have been moved to virtual formats to keep safe during the pandemic. Click here for links to Pride events in Saskatchewan. 

As Saskatchewan’s community union, CUPE proudly celebrates diversity and the role of unions in making our country a fair and more inclusive place for everyone. In the workplace and in our communities, unions have been and continue to be at the forefront of protecting LGBTQ2S+ workers from discrimination and harassment, advancing human rights, promoting inclusion, supporting Trans and non-binary members, defending and improving public services, and securing dignity and equality for all workers through collective bargaining and political action.

The COVID-19 crisis has heightened the need to address inequality and demand more action from our governments at all levels, as we know the disproportionate impact this crisis is having on LGBTQ2S+ people in our community who may face challenges with safe home settings, precarious employment, and barriers in accessing medical care and mental health supports. We acknowledge the courage and commitment of workers on the front lines of public services providing care for our communities, including our fellow LGBTQ2S+ members, who are keeping us all safe. We also recognize the interconnectedness and intersectionality of the struggles against all forms of oppression and the diverse movements that are standing up for human rights.

CUPE Saskatchewan joins in celebrating Pride and stands in solidarity to advance equality.
