Local 117's Women's Caucus provides a voice to women in your union, and a space to address issues facing women in the workplace through advocacy and volunteer work.
- Goals for 2015:
- Recruit more members;
- Involve Teamster families;
- Send Women’s Caucus members to the National Teamsters Women’s Conference.
- Long term goals:
- Recruit and support women for Shop Steward positions;
- Develop a leadership program for women members.
Local 117's Women's Caucus was formed in 2014. Although we are making steps towards our goals, we have been missing an important element - YOU, THE RANK-AND-FILE TEAMSTER WOMAN. Women make up 25-30% of your Local—join us at our next meeting so, collectively, we can make a greater impact for social justice!
