Cupe BC Statement – Kamloops Residential School Discovery


Letter from BC Federation of Labour

To:  BCFED Indigenous Workers Caucus


We want to share our deepest condolences about the news of the confirmation of a long-known fact in the community of Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc: that a mass grave existed at the site of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School.

We are horrified and heartbroken to hear this, and want you all to know that during this difficult time, we mourn with you the lives of these children who never made it home.

Please know that we are keeping you all in our hearts and minds today, and that we will continue to educate ourselves about the genocidal legacy of residential schools, and act in solidarity with the families of those impacted when called to do so.

In solidarity,

President                           Secretary-Treasurer

BC Federation of Labour 200-5118 Joyce Street | Vancouver BC  V5R 4H1

The BC Federation of Labour is located on unceded xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Territories.

People depend on public services; services depend on people to deliver them.

City workers touch every part of life: they fix roads, provide emergency care, test drinking water, connect us with library resources, run ice rinks, work at daycares, lead community workshops, and much more. We’re facing tough economic times, and that’s when we need affordable, reliable public services most. CUPE Local 389 members are responsible for providing these excellent services and can be seen all around the community in the North Vancouver region.

Find out what’s happening by checking the calendar of events or go to the news section for updates.

Have you seen one of our CUPE Local 389 members making a difference? We’d love to hear about it! Visit our contact page and send us an email.
