Gilary Massa, a member of CUPE 1281 and seven-year employee of the Ryerson Students’ Union (RSU), was fired while on maternity leave last December and replaced by a friend of the student Executive Committee.
On May 1, a new Executive Team comes into office at the RSU. We want to welcome them with a clear message—justice for Gilary must be their #1 priority!
Supporting Gilary is not just about defending a single person. Employers in Canada far too often disregard workers’ rights and fire women on maternity leave.
We are asking all Locals to participate in this action and to distribute information about this event to members and allies.
More information on the action and details on how you can participate in the campaign on and off social media is available here.
