Women's Survey: National Union of Public and General Employees: The stress of balancing personal life with work life

Text Size: Normal / Medium / Large

No deadline mentioned

Although, all working people report they are suffering from more stress related to balancing responsibilities at work and at home, the greater burden is falling on women. Statistics reveal that women bear the brunt of duties associated with child care, are the primary caregivers for the elder care of aging parents and are responsible for the majority of household chores.

To identify the issues, NUPGE is conducting a survey that is directed to both union and non-union women. Please take a few minutes to complete the Quality of Women's Lives Survey.

As part of the 20th anniversary commemorations of the December 6, 1989 massacre at the École polytechnique de Montréal, this international and multi-disciplinary conference brings together scholars and researchers, social and community workers and volunteers, and feminist activists to assess collectively how this tragedy has been understood in Quebec and other parts of the globe, reflect on the collective memory of this event, and discuss the issue of violence against women and feminists. 

The conference will have four major themes: (1) the collective memory of the École polytechnique massacre (“Montreal Massacre”), (2) the effects of the event on the feminist movement, (3) violence against women and feminists, (4) the renewal of actions and practices aimed at eliminating violence against women.
