Show your Pride this summer!

Dear Unifor members,

Across the country, Unifor members and their families are building community and celebrating Pride events, and they need your help.

Participation in Pride events is important because it is a fun chance for every single local union to connect to the ongoing equity work of Unifor. With strong, diverse contingents at these events, you can embody our opposition to homophobia and transphobia. We must show our support for LGBTQ members, loud and proud.

I encourage all local unions and members to get in touch with Unifor’s regional Pride Committees to help organize and participate in your community’s events.

Read and download a list of events where Unifor will be present across the country at If your local is involved in an event that is not on the listed please email so that it may be added. Here are just a few of the events that Unifor members are attending:

  • Regina (Queen City Pride), June 15
  • Toronto Pride, June 21-23
  • St. John’s Pride, July 14
  • Halifax Pride, July 20
  • Vancouver Pride, August 4
  • Quebec City, August 31

Lastly, please use the poster included with this letter to highlight your local Pride events. You can download more posters, handbills and an online shareable at Please email LGBTQ staff liaison Sarah McCue with any questions:

Let’s celebrate and march together to send a strong Unifor message against hate. Bring your Unifor flags and solidarity to each event.

Happy Pride!

In solidarity,

Jerry Dias
National President
