Women’s Caucus members from Region IV offer their committee update in Chicago, IL in August 2022.

UWUA’s Women’s Caucus launched after UWUA’s 2015 constitutional convention with the goal of better representing and elevating women’s voices across the union. The Women’s Caucus is committed to helping locals establish their own Women’s Committees as well as helping women members build their leadership skills. The annual calendar initiative supports the Women’s Caucus’ efforts to pay for training and educational opportunities for women members.
