August 21, 2020 | Booklets & Manuals | Misc. Resources | Reports | Research & Publications

The action guide describes 16 health issues or hazards that women workers can experience. Each section looks at:

  • Why is this a challenge and how does it affect women?
  • How can we take action in our local union?
  • What have USW locals, activists and allies already done?
  • What other resources are available, if we want to learn more?

At the end of the guide, the Action Tools section includes a discussion process for talking with women about health and safety, steps for making a committee action plan, the Menopause Hazard Assessment Checklist, the Hazards Checklist for Pregnant Workers and more.
