Dear Sisters and Brothers,
March 8 is International Women’s Day, an annual celebration of women’s economic, political and social achievements. To build on this celebration, we are happy to announce that registration is now open for the 2016 PSAC Prairie Region Women’s Conference!
Members can register online HERE!
The 2016 PSAC Prairies Regional Women's Conference is taking place in Winnipeg MB on June 11 and 12, 2016. As sisters gather from across the prairies, our objective is to have conference participants reach out and involve other members to build our women's committees and mobilize to contribute collectively to social change. Workshops are currently being developed that will educate participants on strategies to better protect and support sisters who are victims of domestic violence; identify the union's role in advancing the PSAC Pan-Canadian campaign on childcare and promote greater security and human rights protections for Aboriginal women.
The union representing over 8,000 members in Manitoba is once again teaming up with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers Football Club to collect school supplies at Canad Inns Stadium gates before the next home game on Friday, August 24, 2012.
The PSAC National Board of Directors is pleased to encourage and support active Regional Women’s Committees (RWC) throughout the country. As a focal point for mobilizing women members, the RWCs are essential to a strong union presence in the regions. They embody the spirit of grassroots organizing and membership participation.
