Women and Gender Equity Committee
To provide women members with tools to help them become engaged in their workplace, union, and in their own communities, the UFCW Canada National Council Women and Gender Equity Committee advises the Council on issues of primary concern to the women membership.
The mission of the Women and Gender Equity Committee is:
- to help find solutions to some of the challenges facing working women and their families;
- to focus on UFCW Canada women organizing other working women, and to encourage their involvement in growing the membership;
- to provide the UFCW Canada National Council with strategies and tools to empower women at all levels; and to develop training, mentorship and education to promote greater participation of women in the decision making bodies of our union;
- to work closely with the other National Council committees regarding women’s issues; and
- to suggest collective agreement language that contributes to the advancement of the current issues of women.
The Women and Gender Equity Committee also participates with the UFCW International Women’s Network, the Canadian Labour Congress Women’s Committee, and with other provincial labour bodies.
Engaged and empowered, UFCW Canada women have a vital role in shaping the future of their union, their communities and their country.
