CUPE Local 1936 wishes to send a message of solidarity to all our members, including members of Chinese descent, who have experienced racism as a result of people’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
No one is to blame for this pandemic. We are all in this together and it’s important that we support one another during this unprecedented health crisis. Racism is not an acceptable response to the COVID-10 epidemic. If you experience a racist attack due to the coronavirus epidemic, know that CUPE BC stands with you. If you witness a racist attack, please let the victim of this attack know you do not support racism in any way and that you support them.
Now is the time to be united. Let’s stand together. If we support one another, we can get through this.
