The Purpose and Goals of the Women's Committee
To gain equality and achieve their goals, women must work with and through their Unions. History demonstrates that by organizing into Unions, working people have achieved better wages, working conditions, benefits, job security, human rights and equity protection.
The Local 111 Women's Committee is an advocate for women within the Union, and especially at the Local level. We often act as advisors, mediators and investigators under Unifor's Harassment and Discrimination Prevention policy. The Local 111 Women's Committee also initiates campaigns in the workplace and community for women's rights.
The Women's Committee is also available to work with the bargaining teams on contract language regarding equity issues. Equality for women and other equity-seeking groups is a central thrust of all our work, both in the workplace and our communities..
