Sheila Mackay, CUPE 1582 member of the bargaining committee during the 1984 Metro Library Strike wore this sign most days on the picket line during the 6th and 7th months of her pregnancy. The union was trying to ensure that women returning from maternity leave were guaranteed their own jobs back. They were also looking for adoption leave accessible to both partners, which they won and paid maternity leave, which they did not.
