"The National Union pledges our continued support and commitment to the struggle for full equality and respect for transgender people. Workers need to feel safe no matter their gender identity or expression." — Larry Brown, NUPGE President
As the Canadian government introduces an amendment to the Human Rights Act to make it illegal to discriminate against anyone based on gender identity and expression, the National Union wants to remind everyone on International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia that this is a struggle that we all need to be engaged in. NUPGE calls on Ottawa to ensure there is funding to build public clinics across the country.
