Join CUPW for the 2015 London Pride Parade.
When: Sunday, July 26th
Please meet at 11:30am at the the Western Fair District parking lot.
The parade will be begin at 12:30pm.
CUPW stands in solidarity with Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transsexual-Transgender-Queer
struggles for human rights. Pride events began as an expression of the fight for dignity
and equality — a refusal to be silenced. These struggles are not over – as we are reminded
every day in the news. We've seen progress toward equity in the past year, but there is
much yet to accomplish.
We're proud of our LGBTQ sisters and brothers. CUPW has been visible, and
audible, at Pride marches and festivals for years - let's keep it up in 2015.
CUPW NATIONAL CONVENTION ELECTION RESULTSThere are 208 CUPW Locals. At the Local level, members create bylaws, elect local officers, decide on local activities, and appoint delegates to Regional Conferences and National Convention.
Every four years, Local delegates meet at a National Convention where they decide on the union’s activities and policies.
