Equity Committee Meeting
Tues, Aug 3rd at 1pm.
All members can join committees & are welcome – but you need to register first:
Thank you to Seneca College President David Agnew for setting precedence.
We request that Brock University make this easy (not light) decision: please, take EVERYONE’s health & safety seriously. Human life is worth more than ‘bum$ in the seat’ mentality. We all have a right to work and learn in a safe and healthy environment on campus. This has NOT been provided to workers or students at this time….
Our governments have done nothing less in the name of public health. Whether it is being able to cross the border without quarantining or entering a long-term-care home without being tested, our governments have acknowledged that being vaccinated is the safe choice that confers a benefit.
Seneca agrees. In fact, we agree so much we think government should follow in the footsteps of jurisdictions elsewhere by mandating vaccinations for certain activities, such as returning to school in person.
Being vaccinated isn’t just about protecting yourself. It’s about protecting your family, your friends, your neighbours, even strangers. It’s an expression of community.
While our vaccination policy was a decision that was, in the end, easy, it was not taken lightly. We respect the right of people not to get vaccinated. In return, we expect them to respect our right to maintain a safe and healthy environment on our campuses.

Click here to register for this webinar, which will take place over Zoom.
*CUPE 4207 members are always permitted and welcome to attend these CUPE Ontario events (In case you didn’t know!).*
On July 15 at 6:00 PM, CUPE Ontario is hosting a webinar to discuss ways of address islamophobia in our communities. We hope that you will join them for this important and urgent conversation.
July 15, 2021 @ 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm Virtual event (Zoom)
We recognize that while Muslims are a primary focus of hate today, it may one day turn to another group. As a result, we should strive to ensure social and legal protections for all Canadians, inspired by the sacrifices and ongoing struggles of numerous marginalized racial, ethnic and religious communities.
