At our last GMM, Outreach Officer – Tracy Kennedy – gave a talk called: “CUPE 4207 & the Indigenization of Post-Secondary Education“.
Tracy offered her insights and experiences that tackled questions such as: What role do academic labour unions play in reconciliation with Indigenous, Métis, and Inuit Peoples? How can CUPE 4207 members incorporate Calls to Action into their work practices – lectures, assignments, seminars, lab demonstrations, office spaces and student interactions?
Here are the PDF slides for Tracy’s talk:

Recognition of Territory:
On behalf of CUPE 4207, we acknowledge and honour the ancestors of those on whose traditional lands we gather today. Brock University is located on the traditional beaver hunting grounds; a shared territory of the Anishnaabe (Aw-nishi-naw-bay), Haudenosaunee (Haw-den-oh-show-nee), and other nations. We welcome and acknowledge all Indigenous Peoples who have joined us including First Nation, Métis, and Inuit, and we also welcome members of settler society.
