First meeting of the USW Network for Women in Industry

Canadian National Office | District 3 | District 5 | District 6 | TWU | Wood Council June 1, 2022

Women work in industrial settings throughout our union – mining, forestry, manufacturing, transportation. This new network provides a confidential space for women in industry to meet, discuss issues of common interest, share ideas and support one another. The Network for Women in Industry is sponsored by the USW National Women’s Committee and can pass along recommendations and requests for action to the committee.

Network meetings are hosted by Steelworker sisters who work in industry: Alecia McLeod (manufacturing sector, USW Local 7913, Brandon, Man.) and Geneviève Savard (mining sector, USW Local 5778, Fermont, Que.). Meetings will be short, held on Zoom and have full English-French interpretation.

The first Network meeting will be on Zoom Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 5:30 p.m. Pacific time (which is 6:30 p.m. Mountain, 7:30 p.m. Central, 8:30 p.m. Eastern, and 9:30 p.m. Atlantic time). You can register here. Spread the word to other Women in Industry. We hope to see you there!
