About the event
As we celebrate the achievements of securing a National Child Care Program and Federal Pay Equity legislation after decades of campaigning, we know that our work matters and makes a real impact on the lives of every Canadian. These victories have proven to ourselves and all who celebrate with us, that we are unstoppable.
This year’s theme, Feminists at Work: We are Unstoppable, reflects on the work we have done and looks forward to the critical work needed to tackle our next big hurdles. Post-Covid, our union’s slogan has been “Build Back Better”, but what does that mean for our lives as women? We will be exploring what that looks like for Unifor Women. We will be learning more about the Care Economy and Climate Justice along with understanding the work of Unifor women within our union and building the strength of our Women’s Committees. We have an exciting agenda that will reinvigorate our courage and determination to push forward collectively.
