Women on the waterfront: watch the film now!

Women on the waterfront: watch the film now!

The face of dockers is changing around the world. 

In Canada there’s been a significant rise in the number of women working on the waterfront as the traditional perception of port work changes and women prove they are capable and committed to working as longshorewomen, wharfies and dockers. 

Women and men from the International Longshore Warehouse union are taking big steps forward by working together. 

Head to the dockers’ pages of the ITF website to view their story, to find out more on women in ports and for resources to help you promote the role of women in employment and as part of the union where you are.
