Solidarity Statement with Wet’suwet’en Nation

Dear members,

We stand in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en Nation. We know many of you have been out participating in protests supporting Indigenous Sovereignty and we recognize your commitment to this cause.

Please see the CUPE Metro statement below. Your local 391 is an affiliate with Metro and voted in favour of supporting a call on governments, the RCMP, and Coastal GasLink Pipeline to respect the position of the Hereditary Chiefs and seek a peaceful resolution to the current conflict.

In solidarity,
