On March 8, CUPE members across Ontario will mark International Women’s Day.
We have worked for more than 50 years side by side with women’s organizations and other unions to advance women’s equality. The inequality faced by women working in the public sector was a driving force behind our union’s formation, and the struggle for women’s rights is at the heart of CUPE Ontario.
We have achieved many victories – pay equity, an end to two-tiered contracts that paid different wages to men and women doing the same work, paid maternity leave and then paid parental leave, protection against harassment and unsafe work.
