Union Strong 2020! Stepping Up, Stepping Out at the Women’s March

Women's Caucus Update

UWUA locals proudly participated in the 4th annual Women’s March on January 18. Led by the National Union’s Women’s Caucus, hundreds of members and supporters stepped out and let their voices be heard in the fight for women’s rights, justice and equality throughout the land.

In New York, Locals 1-2 and 601 joined forces, while in Los Angeles, Local 132’s newly formed Women’s Caucus Committee mobilized to be a real presence in the 300,000 person strong Women’s Solidarity March. Women from both traditional and non-traditional jobs showed up in force!

“UWUA women are W.O.W (Women Of Worth). Investing in their development is key to sustaining our union, and this year’s 100th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage reminds us of the fortitude, and strength of determined women!,” states National Rep/Women’s Caucus Chair Valerie King.

The National Women’s Caucus recently expanded the number of committee members.  Local presidents appointed 17 new members with a goal of increasing participation within respective locals, regions and across the country. The new members have gotten right down to work, reviewing the UWUA’s Resolution for a National Women’s Caucus, the mission/vision statement, the model guide to establishing a women’s committee, preparing for upcoming women’s leadership development training, and getting to work on 2020 initiatives.

A “Call to Action” was put out to start a committee in each of the locals represented in the expanded National Women’s Caucus. As of now, Locals 1-2, 223, 600, 601 and 132 have all answered the call.

Join us in building a caravan of women leaders throughout our locals, regions and National. We have WORK to do! And we need our SISTERS to UNITE and MOBILIZE. For more information follow us on
