Today is International Women’s Day, and the CIU National Women’s Committee wishes to acknowledge the continued work of all activists and members within our union who identify as women, and without whom many of our victories and achievements would never have become reality. A true force for mobilization in the face of adversity, women of all horizons are consistently at the forefront of the union movement to defend our rights and fight for greater equality.
Just today in British Columbia, women activists are once again leading the push against the employer’s all-too-common overreach attempts, rallying against CBSA’s arbitrary decision to cancel long-standing working agreements affecting workers with family related obligations.
On behalf of the entire Customs and Immigration Union, to all the women who are fighting to take down barriers and build a fairer, more just world, we extend our most heartfelt solidarity.
– The CIU National Women’s Committee
