CUPE 4207 represents Academic Workers at Brock University which is located on the traditional beaver hunting grounds, a shared territory of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabe and other nations.
Our union recognizes the treaty rights of all Indigenous Peoples and the responsibility of settlers to honour these rights as we work and live on colonized land.
We understand that we are in a Nation-to-Nation relationship and that Haudenosaunee are self-determining and sovereign. We specifically recognize the rights of Indigenous Peoples to harvest on their traditional lands.
CUPE 4207 commits to standing in solidarity with Six Nations and all other Indigenous peoples. Our Indigenous Solidarity Coalition @ Brock and CUPE 4207 Equity Committee strive to offer events and campaigns that raise awareness and educate our members about upholding treaties through positive and respectful Nation-to-Nation relationships.
