Wear red for Equal Pay Day, April 4, 2023

Several months into each calendar year we reach a date known as Equal Pay Day. This is the average date women have to work into the year to catch up to the wages men made the year prior.

This year Equal Pay Day will be marked on April 4, meaning that women will have worked an extra quarter of a year just to earn what their male counterparts made last year. 

Yes, we are still fighting for equal pay in 2023.

Statement on the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

November 25 starts a global campaign of 16 Days of Activism for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. This year’s theme is Unite: Activism to End Violence Against Women. In the spirit of unity, Unifor is raising awareness among the membership about the Signal for Help, which began in 2020 as a way for women to silently show they need help and want someone to safely check in with them.
