Women of Steel Committee

Description

The United Steelworkers are committed to equality. We believe unions need women and women need unions. We have strong policies against harassment in the workplace, bargain for pay equity and offer training and leadership development to our women members.

All women who are members of the Union are considered Women of Steel.

Who are Women of Steel?

Women of Steel are as diverse as Canada’s population. We are young, middle-aged, and older. We are straight, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender. We are First Nations, Metis, and Inuit, or more recently arrived in Canada, from all cultural backgrounds. They are a growing segment of our union.

Role of women and women’s committees in USW

This is our union! There are lots of ways women can play a role in our union, some of them—like being a steward—are of long standing. Or you could create a new role based on the needs of your local membership or in your community.

USW encourages women members to be leaders within the local union, as a way to make the local and our union stronger. You can be active in any elected or volunteer role.
