PSA CPSU NSW members are encouraged to join the march in March.
The Unions NSW International Women’s Day Committee held its first meeting for the 2024 celebrations. The theme will be Count Her In: Accelerating Gender Equality Through Economic Empowerment.
“We urge as many members as possible to get involved in International Women’s Day on Saturday 9 March 2024,” said PSA CPSU NSW Women’s Industrial Officer Simone Scalmer. “Unions have also been encouraged to include regional members.”
Unions NSW is also discussing what other organisations can be brought into the Committee and how to better engage younger women.
International Women’s Day dates back to 1909, and is a global celebration of women’s rights in the workplace and in wider society. There are annual marches throughout NSW.
