Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) should be throughout everything we do–it is infused in everything we do.
In late 2020 our first Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Manager was appointed to carry out strategic oversight and support DEI initiatives for our union. The DEI Manager works closely with our Local 88 cabinet and Executive Board to operationalize strategies that will lead to policies and practices that are racially equitable and transformative for all members. This position will strive to ensure that the work we do as a union progresses toward the deconstruction of historical racism and the construction of racially equitable outcomes to improve training, planning, decision-making and resource allocation and affirm our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
