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.

Network meetings are hosted by Steelworker sisters who work in industry: Alecia McLeod (manufacturing sector, LU7913, Brandon, MB) and Geneviève Savard (mining sector, LU5778, Fermont, QC). Meetings are be short, held on Zoom, and have full English-French interpretation.

The next Network meeting will be held once on Zoom on Wednesday, November 16 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, 10 p.m. in Newfoundland and Labrador) and will discuss sexual harassment at work. You can register here: https://usw-ca.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0ufu6qqT4qE92V1JnD-KSRgnKEefLmPrq0. Spread the word to other Women in Industry. We hope to see you there!
