CULE acknowledges December 10th as International Humans Rights Day and salutes the members of CULE who struggle to promote Human Rights for all on a daily basis in their union, workplace and community.
International Human Rights Day has been celebrated since 1950 and honours the United Nations General Assembly’s adoption and proclamation, on 10 December 1948, of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the first global enunciation of human rights. This year’s slogan, Human Rights 365, encompasses the idea that every day is Human Rights Day. It celebrates the fundamental proposition in the Universal Declaration that each one of us, everywhere, at all times is entitled to the full range of human rights, that human rights belong equally to each of us and bind us together as a global community with the same ideals and values.
In 2013, CULE negotiated Social Justice Leave Article 21.23 which serves to further promote our work towards a world where we can all have our Human Rights respected.
