December 6th, 2014, National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the 1989 École Polytechnique murders, when fourteen young women lost their lives. Every year, we take this day to reflect on the prevalence of violence against women in our society, and to commit to taking concrete action in order to end violence against women and girls.

In addition to highlighting the 25th anniversary of these murders, the Canadian Labour Congress is encouraging affiliates, federations of labour and labour councils to join us in affirming the labour movement’s commitment to ending violence against women by profiling the results of our Domestic Violence in the Workplace survey and by reinforcing calls for a National Inquiry on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and a National Action Plan on Violence against Women.

With over 7000 responses, we are confident the Survey results will help us win real results at the bargaining table and in legislatures.
