Deb Taylor, chair of the CUPE BC Women’s Committee, looks forward to the discussion that will be generated and the next phase of work for the task force. “CUPE women in British Columbia have made an important contribution to the discussion and we will continue to actively participate.”
Sheryl Burns, BC representative to the CUPE National Women’s Task Force, says that the recommendations reflect the discussion and input from BC women and she looks forward to further feedback at the upcoming CUPE BC Division convention.
The next phase of the process will see findings and recommendations presented to provincial division conventions and other CUPE forums throughout the spring of 2007. The National Women’s Task Force will receive feedback on its report and incorporate members’ suggestions into a revised plan, and a final report and recommendations will be presented to delegates at the 2007 CUPE National Convention in October.
