Le Caucus condition féminine Teamsters Québec est un groupe de femmes offrant de la représentation, des services, de la formation et de l’information en lien avec les besoins des membres féminins du Québec. Il organise des activités destinées à ses membres et favorise le développement d’un réseau de femmes à l’intérieur des Teamsters.
Depuis sa création en 1995, le Caucus milite activement contre la violence faite aux femmes et depuis plus de 15 ans, il appuie une maison d’hébergement pour femmes et enfants violentés.
Il apporte soutien et appui aux femmes victimes de cancer en offrant des prothèses capillaires et mammaires aux femmes membres et aux conjointes des membres des Teamsters.
Enfin, le caucus organise et participe à diverses activités avec d’autres organisations de femmes du Québec afin de promouvoir l’avancement, l’équité salariale et l’égalité des femmes dans notre société.

Teamsters Ontario Women's Caucus
With much excitement I am pleased to introduce the Teamsters Ontario Women’s Caucus.
In the past year, we have been busy with restructuring our Caucus to better meet our objectives and goals – the first change that has been made is a change in the name of our Caucus. We are now known as the Teamsters Ontario Women’s Caucus (“TOWC”) formerly the Teamsters Canada Ontario Women’s Caucus.
There are only two Women’s Caucus Executive Boards in existence in Canada, and I feel we are fortunate to be a part of one of them. There are a grand total of 22,813 women that are Teamster members in Canada. The national average of women members is sitting around 18.3%. 6041 of those Teamster women members reside in the jurisdiction of Joint Council 52. Women make up approximately 20% of our membership in Ontario. We are the second largest province of women members, second to Joint Council 91 out of Quebec, which has 33% women.
As Teamsters, the Women’s Caucus can serve as an added benefit of service to the Locals in Ontario, and to promote the name of our great Teamsters Union. To the members, the TOWC has the ability to provide the resources to connect, network and provide assistance. It is a unique gateway to unite and encourage the Ontario Women of our Union to get involved in social and community based projects and it will form a solid base for women to get more involved in their Union.
We are exploring additional ways to which we can provide access. We have hosted a successful Meet N Greet this past summer at Local 419. It was an informational and enjoyable gathering. We will continue to hold such events semi-annually with plans to circulate to each local. We also publish the TOWC Newsletter twice a year (June and December), so please keep an eye out for it. Ask your Local Union for a copy, or alternatively, contact us at our offices on Airport Road, in Mississauga, Ontario and ask for a copy. We ask our members to get involved – write an article of your life as a Teamster, at your job or doing some other activity that benefits others in your community. In addition to this Website we are also delving into such networking tools as Facebook and Twitter in the hopes of opening the doors to communication and participation.
We hope to network the Teamster women members for the purposes of giving support to women’s issues. We remain involved in the CIBC Run for the Cure, a fundraiser for breast cancer – there isn’t one of us that has not been touched by cancer, in one form or another – be it in men or women
The TOWC hopes to play an integral role as part of the Teamsters Canada Union within the realm of Joint Council 52, and we look forward to your participation and involvement.
Yours in solidarity,
Teamsters Ontario Women’s Caucus
The Teamsters Ontario Women’s Caucus is dedicated to promoting the interests of its members and generally to improve their economic and social well being. The main purpose of the Caucus is to unify women members of the different Ontario Teamsters Local Unions, through a provincial network.
Women represent a substantial percentage of the Teamsters Union membership in Ontario and they are a powerful resource for the Union. The Caucus believes that active participation of women members in the Ontario Teamsters Union will enhance our Union’s strength at the bargaining table, in organizing campaigns and in the political arena.
To that effect, the objectives of the Caucus shall include, but are not limited to, the following:
- To unite women for the purpose of promoting economic, cultural, civic, legislative, political, social and union activities, and/or other activities directly or indirectly, further the interests of the Caucus;
- To uphold the principals of the Ontario Teamsters Union and to foster the opportunity for Teamsters women to serve in leadership positions at all levels of the Union structure;
- To achieve, through a close association, a stronger bond of solidarity and understanding among the representatives of our Union bodies;
- To advance and strengthen our Union organization in the community and in the labour movement;
- To assist and/or join other organizations having purposes and objectives similar to those of the Caucus;
- To engage in community activities which will advance the interests of the Caucus.
It is recognized that the problems which the Caucus is accustomed to deal with are not limited to unionism or to organizing and collective bargaining alone, but encompass a broad spectrum of economic, social and political objectives, as set forth above and as the Caucus may determine from time to time. We, therefore, determine and assert that the participation of the Caucus, individually and with other organizations, in pursuit and attainment of the objectives set forth herein, is for the sole benefit of our members of the Ontario Teamsters Union.
