Tell Your Story Survey

OPSEU’s Provincial Women’s Committee (PWC) needs your help to get the word out on its “Tell Your Story” survey.  The committee is asking that you please circulate this information throughout your regions and locals.       The survey will be a critical part of the OPSEU campaign to promote awareness and education for women and OPSEU members.  The goal is to recognize and respond to domestic violence and gender-based violence as it relates to women.  The survey will take less than ten minutes of your time: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/79MJK9Y Please respond no later than April 17, 2019.   For any questions, please contact the Equity Unit at equity@opseu.org or Carol Mundley, PWC ​Chair  atcmundley@hotmail.com.
