NUPGE statement on the Truth and Reconciliation Report

"It is only through action that our nation will be able to truly move beyond this shame." — James Clancy, NUPGE National President

On behalf of the 360,000 members of the National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE), James Clancy, National President, has issued a statement on the findings contained in the Truth and Reconciliation Report released on June 2.  

"When it comes to Canada's past and current treatment of Indigenous peoples, it is painfully clear that we must change. How will we live with ourselves if we don't? How will we be able to look ourselves in the mirror — feel proud to be Canadian — if we allow the establishment and inertia to convince us not to act?," asked Clancy.
