Worker and Union Solidarity with China: Why and How?

April 26 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Canada-China Focus Presents a webinar with Kent Wong, Director, UCLA Labor Center, founding president, Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance.

Solidarity exchanges between trade unions in China, Canada and US were put on hold by COVID. At the same time economic and geo-political conflicts between nations have created new challenges for workers and unions. This webinar explores the value of worker-to-worker relationships despite those conflicts — indeed, made more important in a climate of anti-Asian racism and protectionism.

Moderated by: 

Joey Hartman, past president, Vancouver & District Labour Council

Xinying Hu, SFU Labour Studies Program.

Register HERE.

Cosponsored by: SFU Morgan Centre for Labour Research, Canada-China Focus: A project of the Canadian Foreign Policy Institute and the Centre for Global Studies, University of Victoria.
