Message of Support for Ukraine
As Manitobans, we watch from across the globe as the situation unfolds in Ukraine. Our thoughts are with members of the Ukrainian community locally and abroad, and we stand with them in support.
AESES has always stood for democracy and fair treatment of workers and their families. The unprovoked nature of the Russian invasion of Ukraine is entirely brutal and unjustified, and millions of workers and their families will have their lives forever changed.
Unions are historically anti-war, and war is never the answer. Lives are lost, and loved ones will never come back home. AESES condemns the acts of violence that Russia is perpetrating against the people of Ukraine.
AESES sympathizes with our members who have family in Ukraine and are anxious about their wellbeing. If you need support, please reach out to a professional or contact the AESES Business Office to learn about the options you might have with your employer.
In solidarity and peace,
Laurie R. Morris
