The trade union movement was built by the struggles of working people -- including aboriginals and racialized workers.
Unifor advocates for these workers, and encourages their participation in union life through local union committees, regional council committees and the Aboriginal and Racialized Workers Caucus. Unifor also holds national and regional Aboriginal and Racialized Workers conferences.

Orange Shirt Day
Locals are encouraged to host events or to join community events marking September 30. Orange Shirt Day is an opportunity to unite with First Nations, governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope.
Unifor recognizes that to move toward recognition and reconciliation, Indigenous children must know that they are loved and valued. Download this t-shirt design and print the image below to spread the message of support.
National Aboriginal Day
Unifor is committed to challenging colonialism and working towards reconciliation. On this, National Aboriginal Day, Unifor calls on the federal government to take real, measureable actions towards reconciling our past with our future. Supportive words alone are inadequate. The federal government must immediately provide equal funding for on-reserve child welfare systems and end the discrimination against Indigenous children. Read the full statement.
