Statement for December 6, 2023

Unifor marks December 6, the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. On this day, we solemnly remember the 1989 École Polytechnique massacre when 14 women were killed on their Montreal campus, and all lives tragically lost to gender-based violence, and we recommit to the ongoing battle against this pervasive and deeply unjust violence.

Increasingly, women are stepping forward to lead in their workplaces and local unions. Taking on the role of Women’s Advocate, as stewards and recording secretaries, and as Local President means there is better representation through every level of Unifor.
