We’ve all seen how greed, division, and racism have compounded during the pandemic to hurt working people and marginalized groups while filling the pockets of the super rich and boosting harmful far-right politicians and movements. COVID-19 has shone a light on many of the inequities and injustices prevalent in our society. Let's work together to build a better future for all. 

Solidarity is Anti-Racism
Anti-racist solidarity focuses on our unity as workers and recognizing that racism is destructive to our shared goal of liberation. Anti-racist solidarity means speaking out against a racist system of power, hearing and supporting those who suffer racism, and collectively mobilizing against hate, bigotry, and systemic discrimination.

Solidarity is Internationalism
A globalized world makes worker solidarity across borders crucial. Political decisions and economic activities that pit workers against each other must be resisted. Solidarity is standing with workers around the world to ensure that peace, freedom, and workers’ rights are guaranteed to all.

Solidarity is Universal Public Services
It is fundamental that health and human services are available to everyone in our communities. Pharmacare, dental care and mental health programs are still not accessible and widely available. Solidarity is working collectively to protect, strengthen and expand universal public services.

Solidarity is Income Equality
Income inequality affects everyone by weakening social bonds which makes health and social problems more likely. Unions are the strongest way to fight income inequality. Solidarity is ensuring that all members of our communities have adequate income resources to live in dignity.

Solidarity is Community
We are stronger together. Neighbourhoods, workplaces, schools, unions, or places of worship are examples of communities where we recognize our shared interests and common humanity. Solidarity is lending a hand and supporting one another to create cultural safety, freedom and dignity for all in our diverse communities.

Solidarity is the Way to a Better Future

It’s time to stand together, locally and globally, to demand a better way forward post-pandemic. We stand for the systemic change necessary to transform our society from one driven by profit to one designed to support people, and to end systemic oppression and exploitation.  

Solidarity is our path to a better future.
