We have an exciting anniversary coming up this year – the 30th anniversary of Women of Steel!
The Women of Steel program began 30 years ago in District 6, and this year District 6 will be celebrating by holding a Women’s Conference in Toronto on July 24 and 25, 2017.
The theme for the conference is Time for HERstory and will highlight the accomplishments of our Women of Steel, look at how we have overcome challenges and plan for the future of our union. The conference will include panels, workshops, interactive theatre and a social event.
The Women of Steel program began as a way to spur women’s involvement and leadership within our union. The program has offered courses specific to women while improving our union’s ability to address women’s issues in the workplace. Women of Steel continues to break down workplace barriers, encourages women’s participation in union activities and develops leadership.
The TWU, USW National Local 1944 will be sending up to 10 members, both experienced and new activists, to attend the conference.
This will be a great opportunity to reflect on our past, and build and strengthen our union for the future.

Deadline to apply (is) Friday, April 28, 2017 at 5:00pm Pacific Time.
