Women & Gender Rights Committee

MoveUP Women's Rights Committee 2018

Chair: Christy Slusarenko

The Women & Gender Rights Committee works to reach out and engage women, non-binary, and gender-fluid individuals and to empower, mobilize and build capacity through mentoring, educating, advocating, and raising awareness of all issues that affect women globally.

The Women & Gender Rights Committee warmly encourages members within each bargaining unit to join the committee and/or submit their recommendations.

The committee campaigns for the support of union officials and representatives, for the aims and programs of the Women & Gender Rights Committee, and encourages women, non-binary, and gender-fluid individuals in the various bargaining units to press for favourable contract clauses and review existing clauses for gender discrimination.
