Unifor, Canada’s largest private-sector union with more than 310,000 members across the country, adopted a motion in support of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement at its recent convention.
The resolution, titled “Palestinian Self-Determination and the Movement for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions,” was put to a vote at the Unifor Canadian Council, which was held Aug. 18-20 at the RBC Convention Centre in Winnipeg.
The resolution, put forth by Unifor Local 222 in Oshawa, Ont., was “easily” passed and stated that it does not condone violence against innocent civilians “or other human rights violations by either side in the conflict.”
It called on Unifor to support the use of BDS tactics to target “sectors of Israel’s economy and society which profit from the ongoing occupation of the OPT (occupied Palestinian territories).”
