Unifor 87-M Women's Committee: What we do



The Women’s Committee of Unifor Local 87-M works to make sure that women’s voices are heard, in our workplaces, our local and our union and communities at large.

 

We meet formally four times a year and hold elections once a year for core roles on the committee. We sometimes also hold special events and training sessions, like the One-Day Women’s Activist courses that we held with the support of Unifor National and women from other locals.
 

We strive to maximize participation of women in the local and look to make improvements in our workplaces when it comes to issues such as equal pay, parental leave, harassment, having a women’s advocate and other issues.

 

While we can normally only provide bookoffs for core members elected to the committee, all members of the local that identify as women are encouraged to participate in the committee and are welcome to attend meetings.
