Women's March 2018

One year later, women are marching

 
On January 20, 2018, millions will march again in cities around the world and Unifor is encouraging every member to participate.

Recent events have shown that now is an important moment to come together to push for social justice for the most marginalized and oppressed among us.

The Women’s March is an important tactic for unifying our communities in order to create change. Now is the time to show resistance and solidarity. We must not rest until women have equity, justice and parity at all levels of leadership in society.

Bargaining Team

December 15

Bargaining continued on Friday. Progress continues but a number of key issues for our members remain unresolved. The employer still has concessions on the table.

During the month of January, we will be producing bulletins on these key issues and concessions. We will also be working with our mobilization committee to develop new activities in support of our demands leading up to the next round of bargaining.

We will be back in negotiations from February 13 to 16, 2018.

December 14

We had another productive day of bargaining. Negotiations are progressing. We will be meeting with the employer again  tomorrow.
