Your Language Rights at Work

In the Yukon, we speak dozens of languages at home. From the many First Nations Languages to Tagalog, our members represent the diversity that is Canada. But what about at work? Some members may speak languages other than English when serving clients, tourists, patients and their family. Can the employer insist that workers speak English on the job? What can you and your co-workers do to maintain solidarity when there may be language-based division at work?

At this month's Round Table, we will discuss our language-related rights and how we build unity in our workplaces.
