Women of Steel
The Women of Steel program gives women in our union the tools and skills we need to fight for and achieve equality and take leadership roles in our workplaces and in the USW.
Raising the Bar on Women’s Health and Safety
Steelworkers pride ourselves on being the health and safety union. Women of Steel are pointing to hazards and health issues they face as women workers. Let’s make women’s health and safety issues a priority for action!
Resources on domestic violence, harassment, and workplace violence
Bargaining language and other tools to take action against domestic violence, harassment and other forms of violence.
Taking action on women’s equality
At the largest ever International/ National Women’s Conference in Toronto in 2018, women from right across the union came together to build a bold plan of action to help guide our union and our activism at work and in our communities.
National Inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women, girls, and two spirit/LGBTQ+ people
Long-time government policies and deeply rooted social beliefs have put Canada’s Indigenous women, girls, and Two Spirit/LGBTQ+ people at greater risk of violence. USW helped in the call for a National inquiry, because an injury to one is an injury to all, and because Steelworkers and our family members are among the missing and murdered.
