Kulsum Khan for Vice-President Unit 3

Vote Kulsum Khan for a #BetterUnion

My name is Kulsum Khan and I’m running for Vice-President Unit 3. I am a candidate in the Master of Social Work program and a Unit 3 member.

As a social worker committed to human rights and social justice issues, I have worked in Canada and internationally with partners, such as Ryerson University, The City of Toronto and Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada. Over the past year, I have been active as a rank-and-file member of our local.

As Vice-President Unit 3, I will work to make the local a safe space for all members. I want to ensure that the local is member led and driven so that it continues to be accessible and accountable to all members. In particular, I will work to implement a targeted Unit 3 outreach strategy to increase democratic participation in the union by Unit 3 members.

I believe that a better union is possible. That’s why I’m running as part of a team of candidates who want to create a local for all its members. We want the local to be more open, accessible and welcoming. We are committed to combating the toxicity that drives members away from union meetings. We support electronic voting so more members can participate in decision making. We are committed to building on the strike’s momentum to broaden the campaign against tuition fees and precarious work and for accessible, high quality education.
