United Sisters

United Sisters works in the workplace, union and society as a whole to identify and take action on issues that affect the status of women. Sisters United recommends measures to eliminate barriers to women’s full participation in the Society, and undertakes education, activism and communication to advance gender equity and women’s rights everywhere.

International Women's Day 2024:

As International Women’s Day approaches, we're reflecting on the disproportionate effect that our collective affordability, care, and climate crises have on women and gender-diverse people.

We need publicly funded, publicly delivered programs like child care, pharmacare, dental care, and much-needed reforms to Canada’s EI program to right this ship.

Society members want a Canada where everyone has a right to the care they need, and the people who provide care are visible, valued and supported.

This International Women’s Day, let’s call on in the government to improve women’s jobs, incomes, and labour force participation.

United Sisters, formerly Sisters in Society (SiS), began as the Women’s Committee. It was initially formed at a time when Ontario Hydro began hiring greater numbers of women into Society jobs. They were becoming a significant Society demographic but “unseen” in terms of Society involvement. The fledgling Committee’s first organizing event aimed specifically at women was an after-work wine and cheese party. Back then The Society was run by a 10-person Executive. Leslie Forge and Fay Greenholtz both served on this Executive and Fay became the first female Society President. There was an effort to recruit women into Society Committees, including the creation of Committees focused on what were considered to be women’s issues – the Work and Family Committee and an Employment Equity Committee. These replaced the Women’s Committee and included male members. In 2018, following the renaming of our union, this committee was renamed Sisters United. This was then updated in 2023 to United Sisters.
