Wear Pink on February 26

BURNABY–On Friday, February 26, CUPE members in British Columbia will join folks in communities across Canada by wearing pink as they participate in International Stop Bullying Day. By wearing pink, CUPE members will take a stand against bullying and bring awareness to this serious problem in schools, workplaces, and communities.

“Bullying doesn’t stop as a result of the Olympics,” said CUPE BC President Barry O’Neill. “We’ve been gearing up for February 26 and I think celebrating this day during the Olympics will draw additional attention to this important issue.”

CUPE BC’s executive board approved the on-going campaign whose aim is to raise awareness among CUPE members about the hazard of psychological harassment and bullying.

Locals and members can order No Bullying T-shirts at a cost of $15 each from CUPE BC. Shirts will be available to ship on February 19 and can be ordered through Shirley Loftus at 604-291-9119.

Please e-mail photos to jszliske@cupe.ca and we’ll post them to our web site. For more information on bullying please visit the Occupational Health & Safety Committee page and go to the Fact Sheets section.

Also check out the Workplace Bullying Institute. Drs. Gary and Ruth Namie created this site to raise awareness of and create a public dialogue about workplace bullying.

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety and The Canadian Safety Council are additional sources of information.
