Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Open Membership Consultations (ON HOLD)

NOTE: THESE MEETINGS ARE POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

At the 2018 HEU Convention, members voted to undertake a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) strategy for our union. As you are aware, the union is holding a series of meetings with local representatives in the Spring on the question of representation of equity-seeking groups on the Provincial Executive, consistent with Resolution 10

In conjunction with some of those meetings, the union will hold Open Membership Consultation Meetings on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion that are open to all members.

As our health care system prepares for the added pressure of dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak, the union is taking steps to safeguard the health and safety of its members. As a result, the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion meetings are postponed until further notice.
