Each and every day, the women of Unifor are building a movement and resisting in the streets, at the ballot box, and at the bargaining table. When women work collectively, across our diversities, we are a force that makes change.
The leadership that drives this change within Unifor are the three Regional Directors. Joie Warnock, Western Regional Director, Naureen Rizvi, Ontario Regional Director and Lana Payne, Atlantic Regional Director, serve as the fearless, bold leadership that all members of Unifor look to for direction and expertise in the fight for progressive change for all workers. On International Women’s Day we celebrate their daily actions and commitment to build our movement and make our union strong.
Because of their persistence, Unifor is a leader on women’s rights at work. Whether it be through the groundbreaking Women’s Advocate Program, paid domestic violence leave, pay equity, anti-harassment or ensuring women have access to male dominated fields like skilled trades - Unifor’s Regional Directors ensure that women are at the table and well-represented.
By breaking down barriers and glass ceilings in the labour movement, the workplace and at bargaining tables, these women have inspired countless activists across the country to get involved in political action. See the difference that Unifor women from coast to coast to coast are making. Watch this short video below.
