Accessibility of Virtual Union Events

A Statement from the USW Task Force on the Accessibility of Union Events

As of 11 May 2020

Virtual meetings are accessible in ways that face-to-face meetings are not: no stairs, no uncomfortable chairs, no faulty sound systems. But they aren’t the perfect solution to union meetings, because they have a whole new range of barriers to accessibility. And this means we have to think of new solutions.
