Committees of the Occasional Teacher Local encourage women members to join colleagues in marking March 8, International Women’s Day.
The Political Action/Public Relations Committee and the Status of Women Committee are sponsoring a table at the Women’s Day event organized by the Waterloo Regional Labour Council. This is a first-time event for the Labour Council, at which women members from a wide variety of Local unions will gather to celebrate women and the many roles they play in society. Please consider joining us at this lunch time event. There will be short presentations by women from our community, a nice buffet meal (served by several of our male Union activists!), raffle prizes, and many door prizes. All proceeds will be given to women’s shelters and services in Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge.
When: Saturday, March 1, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Where: The Uniform Hall at 410 Wabanaki Road in Kitchener
