Like employers, we need to address issues in our union to become more diverse and inclusive, and to fight systemic racism.
Join us for a special virtual town hall for CMG CBC/Radio-Canada members: Shaping our union to reflect our diversity, Wednesday, November 25, 8 p.m. – 9:15 p.m. EST.
All members are invited, and you will receive the Zoom meeting information next week.
There will be insight from the recent CMG Employment Equity survey, followed by a panel that will explore ways and limits to using our collective agreement to improve workplace diversity and inclusion, and exchange ideas on what we can do as a union to better reflect our membership and our communities.
Moderated by Kim Trynacity, CBC/Radio-Canada CMG Branch president, our panel includes Saïda Ouchaou-Ozarowski, Branch executive committee Diversity and Human Rights Director and CMG-CBC Co-chair for the Joint Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) committee; Debora Grant-Barkun, our new CMG Director of Human Rights and Equity; David Thurton, CBC journalist; Canadian Labour Congress Vice-President Larry Rousseau; and CMG lawyer, Michael Thorburn.
Submit your questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org noon, Tuesday, November 24. The panel will address questions submitted in advance first, and the remaining questions as time permits.
CBC/Radio-Canada Branch President, Canadian Media Guild
