March Newsletter

In recognition of International Women's Day, we honour the women in our community and around the globe who continually seek opportunities to change the world - like Delores Huerta, civil rights icon and co-founder of the United Farm Workers of America. 

International Women's Day began in the labour movement. It was first observed in 1909 "to honor the women who went on strike to protest unsafe conditions and unfair employment practices in New York City’s garment industry" (globalcitizen.org). 

On Friday night, the fire and joy of union women was on full display right here in Saskatoon at the Solidarity Picket with Saskatoon Co-op Workers. They kept folks fed, cracked jokes, sang songs, lifted spirits, and taught about the movement's history.

We thank all of the women who persist in the struggle for workers' rights and Indigenous rights at home and worldwide.
