Making a Difference Together

Unifor Local 649 aims to spread the message of justice and worker empowerment. We believe that a single action can make a significant difference in our communities, and that collective action can greatly impact the world. Through investment of time and resources, our team works to improve the lives of workers, their families, and Saskatchewan society as a whole.

International Women's Day 2023

Equity isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have.
A focus on gender equity should be part of our everyday makeup and its crucial to understand the difference between equity and equality.

We can all truly embrace equity.

Not by just saying it, or even just by writing it down.  We need to think about it, know about it, value and embrace it!
It is what we need to believe in, unconditionally.  Equity means creating an inclusive world.

We can, and should, all challenge gender stereotypes, call out discrimination, draw attention to bias, and seek out inclusion.  Collective activism is what changes change, and we all need to do our part to affect this and do so by embracing equity.

Forging gender equity isn’t limited to women solely fighting the good fight.  Allies are immensely important for the social, economic, cultural, and political advancement of women.
When we embrace equity, we also embrace diversity and inclusion. When we embrace equity we forge harmony and unity, and help in driving success for all.

Equality is the goal, and equity is the means to get there. Through the process of equity, we can reach equality.

Embracing equity is the right thing to do.

How will you embrace equity?

Black History Month 2023

As we reflect on Black history, Black accomplishments and the contributions of the many Black communities here in Canada and globally, we also reaffirm the collective work and collective responsibility we all have to continue to advocate to end Anti-Black racism in all institutions and society. We owe it to future generations. 

This year, Unifor's message is “Black History, Black Futures.” Our focus will be featuring Black youth and all they offer in our workplaces and to broader society through skills, talents, intelligence, innovation, creativity, determination and leadership.


Our Union knows that strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our united collective. Back in 2013, the leadership of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union joined with the Canadian Autoworkers Union to create a socially progressive union that we know as Unifor today.
