USW National Health, Safety, Environment and Human Rights Conference



An injury to one is an injury to all

Justice 2017 is USW’s national health, safety, environment and human rights conference. Over the decades, we have built a strong movement to combat unsafe conditions, demand enforcement, and address occupational disease and discrimination. This conference will be a chance for USW activists to sharpen their skills when it comes to defending and advancing workers’ rights.

We hope to see you in Vancouver to discuss and learn about the evolving factors that affect our members’ health, safety, environment and human rights.
