The Association Employees Union (AEU) on solidarity and justice for Black Lives
AEU, like many other labor unions, believes in the principle of “an injury to one is an injury to all”. This principle is likened to the well-known quote of “an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” This conviction inspires AEU to issue the following statement:
AEU unequivocally condemns the recent deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and many other unarmed Black men, Black women and Black children who have been killed by police officers.
>AEU unequivocally condemns police brutality, unlawful uses of excessive force and all other racially motivated inhumanities, injustices, inequities and inequalities.
AEU wholeheartedly stands in solidarity with the Black community – our members, colleagues, families and friends – who have, directly or indirectly, encountered, experienced or been impacted by racism and impunity, in part, because others do not speak up and act on their behalf.
AEU firmly commits to speaking and acting in pursuit of justice, equity and equality.
AEU zealously works each day to fight against workplace inequalities, unfairness and disrespect.
AEU enthusiastically commits to fighting against racial inequalities, unfairness and disrespect.
