1. Why am I being asked to complete a self-identification survey?
The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) is committed to fostering a diverse and welcoming union. Diversity in our union allows us to increase our solidarity and capacity to achieve a just society for all.
We are excited to be launching a voluntary self-identification survey as part of an overall equity audit of our union. An equity audit will help us assess and align the human rights work we all wish to achieve.
The initial important step in this process is to take stock of our membership and examine our representation, at all levels in our union. The equity audit will allow us to celebrate our diversity but also assess if we need to take on additional measures to ensure equity CUPW members can also access leadership opportunities.
2. Who should complete the survey?
CUPW is conducting an initial audit of its elected officers and union representatives at the local, regional and national levels (and staff) to voluntary self-identify the equity groups to which they belong. We invite you to voluntarily complete this survey to be part of this important CUPW initiative.
