Launch of District 3 Women of Steel Network

We are excited to announce the launch of the District 3 Women of Steel Network!

The USW District 3 Women of Steel Network is an opportunity for all sisters who want to connect with other sisters within their local and across Western Canada. This is not a committee and is open to all sisters to join. 

The Network can help address issues that affect working women. Being able to discuss issues women face in day-to-day tasks or at the workplace with others that can relate or have similar experiences can help build solidarity. The issues and topics discussed on the Network will not always be union-related and sisters can contribute whether it is workplace-related, political, informative, or creative.

The Network will utilize a private Facebook group and only members of the group can see who is in the group and what is posted. Sisters can participate from the comfort of their own home or on work breaks and can attend any speaker events or group chats. 

Sisters must register to join the Network at The first 100 sisters to register will receive a limited-edition scarf featuring both the traditional Rosie the Riveter as well as a Modern Rosie image. 

We will be holding an official virtual launch on Wednesday, February 10, 2021, at 6:30 pm Pacific Time. We will be joined by Sister Carol Landry to help launch the Network and sisters are encouraged to register as soon as possible with the Network to receive more details.

The Network is being coordinated by Ginette Hoogeveen (Talbot) and Tara Cavanagh. If you have any questions about the Network, please reach out to Ginette,, or Tara,

Join the Women of Steel Network today!

In solidarity,

Stephen Hunt
Director for District 3
