ETFO is committed to working towards a more just society by being responsive to the needs of our diverse membership and supporting others towards positive social change. We continue to work to eradicate all forms of racism that exist by educating our members and students about Islamophobia and offering resources to confront racism and anti-Muslim discrimination.
The Canadian Labour Congress has recently published a resource entitled Islamophobia at Work: Challenges and Opportunities. It explores the rise of anti-Muslim attitudes and discrimination in Canada.
It provides recommendations for union members, educators and social justice activists on how to address this significant form of racism.
