The National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) is committed to a global labour movement and to building alliances with social movements and rights defenders in the fight for global justice. We believe we have a responsibility to speak out against injustices, support those who are impacted, and stand in solidarity with struggles for change — not just in Canada, but around the world.

NUPGE has been active in international solidarity efforts such as those with labour activists in Colombia, the Rohingya, the struggle for human rights and democracy in the Philippines, and the Kurdish people’s right to self-determination.
