The CMG-CBC Branch held a virtual town hall on November 25, as part of our efforts to ensure our union is more diverse, inclusive and to fight systemic racism.
Participants shared experiences and exchanged ideas on the work that’s being done and what we still need to do to ensure real progress.
Our thanks to everyone for attending and sending questions. If you were unable to attend, here is the link.
