February 24, 2021 is Pink Shirt Day in Canada, also known as Anti-Bullying Day. Started by two high school students in Nova Scotia who came to the defense of a fellow student being bullied for wearing a pink shirt, the spirit of that action is now embodied in Canadians across the country who wear pink on this day to publicly express their anti-bullying stance.

ATU Local 583 fully supports this endeavor. We encourage all of our Members to be kind in the workplace (and your daily life). You never know what someone else is going through. A kind word or interaction can make a great difference.
