Happy Black History Month from the Union of Health and Environment Workers. As National President I want to acknowledge the many black leaders who helped to build our Component and Union. I also want to thank the black activists within UHEW who are fighting racial injustice everyday in the workplace and throughout society. You are not alone.

The Union of Health and Environment Workers stands with you and we recommit ourselves to fighting against discrimination and harassment of all racialized members and to building a fair and just society. As the great Martin Luther King Jr. once said: “The time is always right to do what’s right.”
That time is now.
