National Day for Truth and Reconcilliation (Orange T-shirt Day)

Dear members,

Next week on Thursday, September 30, Unifor members across Canada will be commemorating the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation (Orange Shirt Day) to honour the experiences of former students and survivors of the residential school system and to promote awareness about the residential school system and the harm it has had and continues to have on Indigenous communities.

We encourage you to wear orange and join events in your community!

Unifor commissioned Haisla artist Nathan Wilson to create a design for our 2021 t-shirt and event materials. Learn more about the artist and the design at

There is also a new poster for you to print and share around the workplace.

No matter where you are, you can show your solidarity and be an advocate for reconciliation. Wear orange, take a photo, and share online using the hashtags #unifor and #everychildmatters. Send your photos to and we’ll add them to the national album.

Thank you for your commitment,

Jerry Dias
Unifor National President
