International Women’s Day is March 3

Local 79 will join in the International Women’s Day march and rally on March 3, 11:00a.m. – 1:00p.m. at OISE Auditorium, 252 Bloor St. W. Look for the CUPE Local 79 flags to join our contingent as we march to Ryerson University.

In the meantime, get motivated by Queen Cee’s remake of the “Bread & Roses” poem/song posted below, inspired by the textile strike of 1912 led by women. For a brief history of Women’s Day, see the Status of Women Canada’s write-up.
