CAPE sat down with member Jean-Sibert Lapolice, who is also the strategic engagement and partnership lead at the Federal Black Employees Caucus (FBEC), in honour of Black History Month and the work FBEC is doing.

Demonstrations in the National Capital Region and the use of Code 699

CAPE, along with other Public Service Unions, has shared its concerns with the Employer regarding the impact that some of our members are experiencing from the ongoing demonstrations being held in the National Capital Region and elsewhere in the country. As a result of this advocacy, the Employer has agreed to consider the use of Code 699 leave in the event members are unable to work due to these disturbances. Requests for this leave can also be made retroactively for those who already used other forms of leaves.

February: Celebrating Black History

February is Black History Month, a time to celebrate and recognize all the contributions the Black community has made to Canada's history. It is also a time to reflect on all the progress we have made in the fight against racism and how far we still must go to achieve an inclusive society for all.
