Equal Pay Day Event
April 20, 2015
10:00am-2:00pm
Stauffer Library

In cooperation with the AMS, PSAC 901, USW Social Committee and USW Women of Steel Committee, Local 2010 will hold an Equal Pay Day event from 10:00am-2:00pm on April 20, 2015 in front of Stauffer Library to raise awareness of this important issue. We will be giving out free coffee, hot chocolate, snacks, and literature. We will be dressing in red to show how women are in the red when it comes to our pay cheques.

Equal Pay Day illustrates how far into the next year a woman, on average, must work to earn the same amount made by a man the previous year. The US, Europe and other countries have proclaimed Equal Pay Days with activities and events to raise awareness about the gender pay gap and to ignite action to close it.

Supporters wear red on Equal Pay Day to mark how far women are “in the red” when it comes to their pay.

Ontario’s Equal Pay Coalition and the Ontario government has declared that Equal Pay Day this year will fall on April 20th, 2015.

According to the most recent Statistics Canada data, the average annual earnings of all women in Ontario as compared to men is 69.5% –or a 31.5% gap. This measure includes all the women part-time workers, with about two thirds of part-time workers being women. This gap has increased by 3% over the previous year.

TODAY: IT’S RALLY TIME!!

At our rally in October, the CUPE locals came out in force to support us – even though some were forced to take lieu time.

Now it is time for us to return the favour!

Local 229, along with CUPE 1302 and 254, are putting on an informational rally in support of their bargaining efforts on January 28th from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the corner of University and Union Avenues.

All 2010 Members are invited to attend!

They are providing a meat and vegetarian chili and hot chocolate prepared by the unionized Food Service Workers CUPE Local 229.

CUPE will be passing out buttons, along with a flyer, in support of all the work CUPE locals perform at Queens to provide quality education in a safe and healthy place for all.
