Human Rights

 

The Human Rights Committee is established to ensure that discrimination of any kind is eliminated and equal opportunities are promoted at the National, Regional and Local levels, through the process of negotiation and consultation.

It further encourages members to collaborate with other organizations dealing with equal opportunities and the elimination of discrimination, i.e., the Provincial Federations of Labour, the Canadian Labour Congress, the Organized Working Women, etc.
