I am writing to invite your union to participate in the ninth year of our exciting March 8th Project developed by the OFL Women’s Committee celebrating International Women’s Day (IWD). This year’s theme is “POWER OF MANY.” Both the pewter pin and poster are a work of art that our members and community partners will value for many years to come.
The pin is sold at cost plus 25 cents. Any surplus of this added cost will be donated to a provincial women’s organization recommended by the OFL Women’s Committee to the OFL Executive Board. Last year’s surplus funds went to support the following organizations:
- Equal Pay Coalition’s Equal Pay Day Campaign
- CBTU Summer Youth Program: OFL sponsored 5 girls to attend
- OCBCC—Child Care Worker and Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day
- Northern Indigenous Foodbank
The price per pin for orders of 500 or more is $3.60 (plus shipping). Orders of less than 500 is $3.85 per pin (plus shipping). Unions that place orders of 500 or more pins will have their union logo added to the poster. Posters (11×17) will be available in limited quantities in both English and French for $1.00 per poster. All orders must be placed by February 11, 2019, in order to have the pins produced and shipped in advance of IWD. Orders can be placed after February 11,2019; however, we would not guarantee receipt of order before March 8, 2019.
This year, for your convenience, we have arranged an online order and payment option. Click the following link to order your 2019 IWD Pins and Poster myunionstore.com/iwd or maboutiquesyndicale.com/8mars.

Below is the unveiling of our 2019 IWD poster and pin design!
Yours in Solidarity,
