Women's Advocate

During the negotiations for the 2016-2019 Collective Agreement it was agreed to have a Women's Advocate in our workplace.  A Women's Advocate is a specially trained workplace representative who assists women with concerns such as workplace harassment, intimate violence and abuse. The Women's Advocate is not a counselor but rather provides support for women seeking workplace and community resources.  The Women's Advocate program is an excellent example of a successful joint union/management workplace initiative that helps create healthy, respectful and safe workplaces.
