The Status of Women Within B.C. Federation of Labour Affiliated Unions


This 1987 study was based on the results of survey questionnaires developed by the Women’s Rights Committee of the B.C. Federation of Labour and sent to affiliates. Its purpose was to investigate the status and participation of women within unions, especially in leadership; the extent to which unions have addressed concerns of women within their own structures; and the extent to which unions have negotiated improvements in their collective agreements that especially or solely affect only women.
